Go to Global SAFe Summit 2019

Create a Lean-Agile Center of Excellence

The Lean-Agile Center of Excellence (LACE) is a small team of people dedicated to implementing the SAFe Lean-Agile way of working. It is often one of the key differentiators between companies practicing Agile in name only and those fully committed to adopting Lean-Agile practices and getting the best business outcomes.

In this workshop, we will provide guidance on the size, structure, and operation of the LACE based on our experience, as well as the experience of others working directly in the field. Topics to be covered include:

  • LACE purpose, responsibilities and recommended team size
  • Chartering the LACE and identifying critical stakeholders
  • Defining the LACE mission statement, scope, and success criteria
  • How to operate the LACE as an Agile team
  • Evaluating alternative organizational models for scaling the LACE
  • Recommended LACE activities for driving continuous improvement and supporting the SAFe implementation
