In 2019, the client decided to transform its IT department into a fully agile department. Although many teams had already been using agile practices for some time, there was a need to address the transformation from a “top down approach”. Because of the different ways of working and multiple dependencies between teams, a department’s approach was required. SAFe was chosen as the Framework to be implemented, but a new operating model for the client was required to implement SAFe in this context.
