Mapping Organisational Roles with SAFe
Mapping of traditional development roles to the new ones in SAFe can be challenging. Role mapping requires consideration of not only hard and soft skills, but also key competencies, and other attributes. A successful transition strategy requires that people understand the SAFe transformation vision and timing, how their role will change, and most importantly, that they feel secure in their job.
In this session, we will cover:
• Creating the transformation vision that motivates and compels people to participate in the transformation
• How you should go about informing people about the new SAFe roles
• The timing for when you begin to discuss role changes
• Patterns for mapping traditional roles to SAFe roles
• The key competencies and attributes of the critical SAFe roles and patterns for sourcing people and reporting structure
