Main Topic: Shared Services and Inverse SAFe

SAFe framework basically waves a hand at shared services acknowledging they impact the SAFe development teams but doesn’t provide workable guidelines on how to facilitate them.  The issue is scale.  The SAFe framework assumption is unlimited shared resources are available to embed in the development trains.  We don’t.  No one does. 

In this presentation, we will look at a case study of a medium/large company implementing the SAFe framework and the impact on shared resources (ie. Operations, Security, etc.).  To support the multitude of development trains, shared services teams discovered that they have to turn SAFe on its head and basically do it backwards.  This presentation will focus on their discoveries and more importantly, the solutions implemented to support our SAFe, traditional Agile and non-Agile customers.

Presenter: Kirk Menard

Kirk started his career as a developer at McDonnell Douglas in 1987.

In 1989, he joined one of the first HMO’s moving from programming to management of development teams.  Through a series of mergers and acquisitions the company eventually became United Healthcare.  During that M&A period Kirk moved from managing development teams to Operations and technology acquisition.

Kirk joined the Mastercard PMO in 2011.  His initial focus was on fraud systems.  Eventually moving back to Operations focusing on onboarding M&A and purchased systems.

In 2015, Kirk joined the team responsible for bringing SAFe into Mastercard.  Kirk currently holds SAFe certification and is the Subject Matter Expert (SME) for Operations.
