PA Consulting Group is pleased to announce that it has recently become a Scaled Agile Gold partner with Scaled Agile, Inc.
The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) supports organisations in their adoption of Agile-Lean values and practices at enterprise scale. This partnership extends PA's 10-year plus experience in organisational agility and cements PA's commitment to ‘Big Agile’ and expertise in helping clients implement SAFe® within their organisation.
The SAFe® framework is a key part of PA’s ‘Big Agile’ approach, which has been developed based on PA's experiences in successfully transforming global organisations across multiple sectors. ‘Big Agile’ is supported by four key considerations for enterprise-wide Agile adoption:
scaled Agile delivery
simplified business design
implementation of Lean thinking
widespread culture change.
Over the past year, PA has successfully implemented the SAFe® Framework with a global pharmaceutical company in one of the world's largest adoptions of Scaled Agile. Amongst the teams working in an Agile way so far, benefits of $13.5m have been achieved, with a further doubling in adoption of Agile expected in 2016.
“Working with best-in-class partners like PA Consulting represents our commitment to helping software and systems-dependent enterprises improve time-to-market, quality, and employee engagement,” said Dean Leffingwell, Scaled Agile’s CEO and creator of SAFe®. “By incorporating SAFe® into their solution offering, PA Consulting is enabling the world’s largest organisations to become more Agile in the marketplace and more competitive in their industry.”
