ART Launch Workshops: Your path to a successful Agile Release Train

Together we organize a series of ART Launch workshops and conduct them. In these workshops, we plan the ART launch and the team staffing. In addition, we create the vision, an initial roadmap and backlogs, and we jointly create a Kanban board. Last but not least, we set up the necessary tools and documentation approaches (e.g. in JIRA or Confluence).

SAFe Training: Interactive and Experience Based

Start of PI PlanningWith our interactive and through many simulations experience-based SAFe Trainings we train all participants in SAFe. Choose between in-house training and open training slots. We optimally prepare executives as well as key roles such as product management, product owner, release train engineer and scrum master. Our simulation-based SAFe for Teams Training lets teams experience an entire PI interval. Our focus: More practical experience, less theory for successful implementation.

PI Planning: Coaching for preparation, implementation and follow-up 

We support you in the organization of the first PI Planning-events. In this context we optimally prepare the key roles such as the Product Management and the Release Train Engineer (RTE). Together we design the agenda and the moderation of the PI planning. During the event we accompany the ART Leadership Team. Depending on your wishes and needs, we can also assist the teams during the event. The follow-up on ART and team level completes our offer.

Our professional support ensures a good start to the Agile Release Train

With our support you get:

  • A jointly developed ART vision and backlog for the first PI.

  • A targeted preparation of the key persons for their roles in the ART
