Customized SAFe® Kick-Starter

scaled agile partner badge

SAFe® (Scaled Agile Framework) is the most prominent framework worldwide for scaling agility from the team to the entire enterprise level. Through the lean and agile practices and roles in SAFe®, even large corporations can quickly adapt to new market and competitive conditions, work much more customer-centrically in product/service development and service/operation, and create highly efficient structures for internal network-based collaboration.

Unfortunately, SAFe® is quite complex and needs to be adapted to the specific organizational goals and requirements for a successful implementation. A 1:1 implementation according to the SAFe® textbook is often not effective. Additionally, introducing SAFe® through the training of individual teams is time-consuming.

We're changing that now with our Customized SAFe® Kick-Starter! In the 2-day seminar, we will analyze your organization and work processes and compare them with SAFe®. In this way, with the help of our experts, the essential optimization levers for your company will be identified and a SAFe® target image adapted to your organization will be developed.


  • Foundations of Scaled/Business Agility and the SAFe® Framework

  • Deepening modern leadership approaches ('Lean Agile Leadership')

  • Deepening of processes and roles in SAFe® through exercises and role-playing

  • Practical insights into the agile transformation of other companies: good practices and lessons learned

  • Workshop session to assess the starting situation of your own company and develop an approach for agile transformation

Insights for your company

  1. 1

    How agile is your company really at present? What are the biggest hurdles to overcome? What are the business benefits of it?

  2. 2

    What existing agile roles already exist in the company? On which roles can one build upon in the context of agile transformation?

  3. 3

    What structures and processes (rituals) exist today for more holacratic decision-making processes and autonomous delivery units? Which ones need to be introduced?

  4. 4

    What methods and document types (artifacts) are currently used to define, operationalize and break down strategic objectives into larger and smaller work packages? What is missing for optimal goal alignment and efficient planning and documentation of work?

Developing improvement measures together

During the second half of the second day, the focus is then on developing a company-specific transformation roadmap for your organization. At the end, you will know exactly what further steps need to be taken and will be familiar with quick wins as well as medium-term transformation goals.

The Customized SAFe® Kick-Starter is conducted by one of our highly experienced Agile Transformation Consultants. Our trainers have extensive hands-on experience in enterprise transformation in multiple industries and are proficient in SAFe® as well as other frameworks and methods. This ensures that the workshop outcome is truly aligned with your organization-specific requirements.

Our Customized SAFe® Kick-Starter is ideal as an in-house training/workshop with a group of people who are responsible for or involved in the agile transformation. The seminar is suitable for both companies that do not yet work agile and want to start, as well as for organizations that are already agile and want to optimize their collaboration model.
