SAFe – Scaled Agile Framework
You already use the advantages of agility in your organization and have achieved convincing experiences and results with some teams. Your autonomous Scrum teams make a valuable contribution to the success of your company. You may control the product – service development with Kanban / Scrum and the management is always lean. Now the question of scaling within the company arises:
- How can strategy and implementation be harmonized?
- How to scale over several teams?
- How to ensure the “value” over a whole company?
- How to ensure communication?
“Scaled Agile Frameworks” (SAFe) is designed as a framework to ensure that the right people do the right thing at the right time – regardless of whether there are 50 or 5,000 people, or whether this happens in development, operational management or strategic management. For all our agile consulting services we have created a dedicated team of specialists with a new solution concept of our own brand: Pontine.

Faster and better. These are the goals of DevOps. They are achieved by breaking down the “wall of confusion” between development and operations, by creating a common culture, by continuous delivery and consistent automation – to name just a few examples. We at Pontine have helped shape the DevOps movement and have already accompanied several customers on the DevOps journey. You are confronted with fragmented silos in your organization and want to push the DevOps issue? Do you want to create awareness within the organization of how to get employees and decision makers on board with enthusiasm? Do you want a tailor-made overview of DevOps motivation, principles and practices?

- DevOps Toolchain Review

From our experience, DevOps dramatically improves agility and stability. This refers to time-to-market, more frequent release cycles on the one hand, and a shorter average troubleshooting time and a lower change error rate on the other.

You want to take advantage of agility in your organization? And do you attach importance to theoretical understanding on the one hand, and on the other hand to the highest practical relevance and quick implementation? You would like to know which levers have to be activated in your organization to successfully implement first agile projects, e.g. according to Scrum? We accompany you and your team in the application of agile principles and practices:
- Agile LiftOff Workshop
- Coaching Agile Transformation
- Retrospective as a Service
We have already supported several companies in their agile transformation. Agility starts in the head (agile mindset), defined by agile values and principles and finally implemented operationally through agile practices such as Scrum, XP, Kanban or SAFe. A successful agile journey always starts with your “Why Agile? (if not yet defined) and we adapt the agile journey to your specific environment (“Finding YOUR Agile”). The focus is always on the self-organized, agile team, which ideally can move around autonomously and products. It has proven to be successful to proceed in small steps, i.e. to start with a pilot team and to let lessons learned flow into the transformation. This also requires that a transformation towards agile leadership takes place at management level.

For us, Lean means: meaningful and sustainable improvement of value-adding activities through the empowerment of employees. Lean is more than faster, better and more cost-efficient. Lean – like Agile – is a unifying element and a prerequisite for achieving the goals set for the company and the customer. We introduce you to the Lean-IT principles and practices:
- Agile Value Stream & Analytics
- Problem Solving
Lean Management stands for “lean management” and for flexibility. Lean Management includes all methods, ways of thinking and tools that companies can use to optimize their processes. A company that is lean in this sense concentrates on the essentials and deploys the right resources at the right time in the right quality to achieve added value for the customer.

Cloud-Strategy & Readiness
Cloud technology has ushered in a new age of information processing. IT from the socket has become reality. Cloud computing is not, as is often claimed, a revolution in IT, but merely a consistent further development of the IT landscape. It is about using IT infrastructure and IT services such as storage space, computing power or application software as a service via the Internet. While cloud services are already established in private environments, the “journey to the cloud” still poses a number of challenges for companies. We accompany you individually on your journey into the cloud:
- Cloud LiftOff Workshop
- Cloud Readiness Check
- Enterprise Cloud Strategy
- Migration to the Cloud
We have had good experience with an agile approach that ideally supports the introduction and implementation of cloud computing. An agile strategy process that delivers significantly better results and is fun for everyone involved. The starting point, even in an agile process, is to capture the current situation. Together we develop the strategy and the goals. Strategic initiatives are prioritized and then implemented at implementation intervals. Implementation is reviewed against the defined goals.

Assessment of DevOps Capabilities
Your organization has decided to embark on the DevOps transformation and does not know what skills are required and how they can be developed. It lacks an overview of which skills are already well established and where there is a need for development. You want to be able to measure your own progress as the capabilities of your DevOps journey grow. To improve business performance through the application of DevOps principles, you first need an assessment of DevOps capabilities.
The Assessment of DevOps Capabilities (ADOC) is a tool to measure and accelerate your DevOps journey. ADOC determines a DevOps baseline state, measures and accelerates continuous improvement. With our assessment model, we capture team capabilities and can use the results to derive clear action items and measures for the development of the DevOps organization.
In doing so, we focus on the 5 dimensions of DevOps capabilities:
- Human Aspects
- Process and Frameworks
- Functional Composition
- Intelligent Automation
- Technology Ecosystem
The data collected enables teams to self-discover improvements, with guidance from a qualified ADOC consulting partner, and accelerate progress.
Your organization can benchmark team capabilities across the enterprise, identify high capability levels, and turn local discoveries into global improvements.
