Scaled Agile Business Strategy Integration

WHY this Enablement Package?

Did you know there is another layer above Portfolio. “Business Strategy” level may not be visible in the SAFe framework, but it’s implicitly there. That’s were various business owners and senior executives determine and drive the strategy for the whole organization. Most importantly, it’s the layer that’s the hardest to change. Fear not, we can help you adapt the new SAFe Portfolio layer and your current Business Strategy layer for optimal alignment, maximum impact, and minimum friction.
