Deutsche Bahn AG as the German railway company is the leading mobility provider for persons and freight in the German market. Several divisions of Deutsche Bahn decided to implement the Scaled Agile Framework for their IT- and process development. Overall we have launched 13 trains and trained more than 1.000 knowledge workers.
In our talk we describe the characteristics of the different SAFe implementations, some of them initially started as process organization pattern for a large project, some of them as organizational pattern for the whole organization. Our deep dive will be the agile transformation of the Sales Business Unit where SAFe is not only the main pattern for the development departments but also for the agile transformation itself. We talk about PI Plannings of the agile transformation initiative, and about disciplines of this transformation as HR activities and agile budgeting and controlling.
