Lean-Agile Center of Excellence WorkshopDrive enterprise adoption of Lean-Agile practices and business results

The LACE is a small, dedicated team of leaders and change agents who are responsible for driving real and lasting organizational change.

An effective Lean-Agile Center of Excellence (LACE) is a critical success factor differentiating organizations fully committed to adopting Lean-Agile practices and achieving significant business results from those practicing Agile in name only.

The challenge is that most of the people qualified to drive change have full-time responsibilities in their current roles. While a significant portion of their time can perhaps be devoted to supporting the change, a smaller, more dedicated group of people is needed to drive SAFe® adoption throughout the organization.

During this one–day workshop, you will explore proven SAFe adoption patterns (as well as common pitfalls) and how they apply to your context, in order to:

  • Create the mission statement and charter for the LACE
  • Understand and learn how to carry out the responsibilities of the LACE
  • Determine the organizational model for the LACE (centralized, decentralized or hub-and-spoke)
  • Set up the LACE as an Agile team
  • Build your initial SAFe Implementation Roadmap
  • Learn how to prepare to launch your first Agile Release Train (ART)
