Translating strategic product planning into software delivery outcomes is complex in large organizations. As DevOps is implemented and begins to transition product-oriented teams, there remains dependencies across teams and the need to coordinate efforts across products. Value stream thinking aims to unify software development from planning to delivery with value stream management.

SAFe has firmly established itself as the leading agile at scale framework helping organizations worldwide to embrace lean, agile and DevOps principles to improve organizational performance. SAFe leverages value streams as a core organizational component to support large and complex organizational transformations in changing the way they work.

Join SAFe practitioners Mark Peters of Technica and Siddharth Pareek of NatWest Bank talking with Helen Beal, industry leader in DevOps evolution, and Jeff Keyes, VP of Product at Plutora to learn how value stream management superpowers SAFe implementations.

Key takeaways:

  • Optimizing Agile Release Trains (ARTs), value streams and teams with value stream management
  • Aligning and measuring OKRs and KPIs real-time with data from a DevOps toolchain
  • How value stream management helps organizations move from managing dependencies to breaking them
