A conversation between SAFe Fellow, Joe Vallone and newly minted SAFe Fellow, Brian Tucker, talking about patterns they see forming within the people, around teams, program layer, even up at portfolio, and how these patterns are the building blocks, the fundamentals of how everything gets put together.


A conversation between SAFe Fellow, Joe Vallone and newly minted SAFe Fellow, Brian Tucker, talking about patterns they see forming within the people, around teams, program layer, even up at portfolio, and how these patterns are the building blocks, the fundamentals of how everything gets put together.

Companies don’t look at these patterns very often. They don’t understand the pros, the cons of why these things work, why they don’t work. They try random patterns and then end up with badly structured organizations. This discussion reasons how to take a deliberate approach to figuring out what the roles and responsibilities are, identifying which interactions need to take place, and what groups need to form to get the work done.
