Scaled Agile Integrated Portfolio Intake and Prioritization

WHY this Enablement Package?

One of the hardest aspect of implementing SAFe is integrating it into existing organizational structures and processes, intake and prioritization being one of the most common ones. If your division / department cannot simply implement these as prescribed by SAFe, let us assist you in adapting these processes for maximum impact and minimum disruption.

Key Benefits

  • Clarity of purpose and priority for all projects / epics even in a hybrid predictive+agile framework.
  • Ability to use multi-factor prioritization regardless of framework(s) present.
  • Clear LEAN intake process allowing for hybrid and dual frameworks.

HOW is this delivered?

This is delivered through a combination of focused direct mentorship, group training, and coaching supported by numerous resources and materials.
