KPMG supported the client's IT organization’s Agile transformation using Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) to significantly reduce delivery times.
When executive leadership makes a decision to transform an operating model, the success hinges upon the execution by leaders and team members of the impacted organizations. There can be tremendous pressure and often little room for error.
Our client was faced with this kind of challenge, while also having limited to no internal expertise with the new delivery model. Using our in-depth knowledge of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), we partnered with the client sucessfully to introduce the SAFe Lean Portfolio Management (LPM) process.
This client’s product marketing organization was seeking to reduce the company's 12-18 month initiation-to-delivery product development time. To do so, the business solutions product team needed consultants experienced in development transformations and familiar with the organization’s culture and processes to help them:
The client is successfully operating SAFe processes with end-to-end impact of project initiation / funding through delivery / day 2 operations acceptance. Further, SAFe is being adopted as the standard operating model in all organizations involved in product development: Capital Finance, Operations, Product Marketing, QA / Testing.
Since engaging with KPMG, the client has launched four Agile release trains (ARTs). Value delivery identified trains are delivering incremental value and providing unprecedented transparency to the organization. Delivery times are down from 18 months to 3-6 months.
