An Amplio Bootcamp

Unlocking SAFe

About this bootcamp

SAFe has faced criticism from many quarters, yet it’s essential not to overlook its beneficial aspects.

SAFe has the capability to unlock workflows that previously took years to deliver value, now achieving significant results in just three months. This represents a remarkable accomplishment. However, this achievement is frequently short-lived.

As an early adopter and trainer of SAFe, as well as a prominent figure in Flow and Lean thinking, Al Shalloway has developed a unique approach to overcome the challenges of SAFe adoption. This approach forms the cornerstone of our upcoming bootcamp. It encompasses:

  • Implementation of Agile budgeting and lean allocation to streamline budget coordination, aligning CapEx and OpEx budgets.
  • Introduction of Minimum Business Increments to enhance planning efficiency and accelerate delivery.
  • Integration of value stream management practices.
  • Implementation of robust team restructuring to minimize dependencies between value streams.
