How to Scale Agile with SAFe® Using VersionOne and Jira

Get the report

Many agile methodologies focus on team planning and delivery activities. For the individual team, these approaches and tools have achieved success, but now struggle to scale across multiple teams and plan work at a more strategic level. The Scaled Agile Framework for the Enterprise (SAFe®) addresses scaling issues by providing success patterns for organizations that ensure enterprises deliver software that meets its strategic and business objectives. In this webinar, learn how CollabNet VersionOne for SAFe® can be used with Atlassian Jira to scale agile across the enterprise.

We will cover how using VersionOne as the portfolio and program planning solution and integrating the Jira Team tool for execution, organizations can:

  • Implement scalable, out-of-the-box key constructs, practices, reporting, and metrics defined by SAFe
  • Track enterprise-scale initiatives that combine multiple features across different teams from concept to cash
  • Align, measure, and optimize the flow of value across programs, large solutions, and portfolios
