Scaling Agile in a Box

Scaling Agile in a Box

All you need for a successful take-off of your Agile transformation

The Program Increment (PI) Planning Event is a significant event for the successful launch of your Agile Release Train (ART). Gladwell Academy developed the Scaling Agile in a Box toolkit, a proven, successful approach to launch your ART with a first PI Planning Event with the shortest possible lead-time.

The Scaling Agile in a Box toolkit is a proven set of practices and templates to effectively implement SAFe principles and practices in the local context. Simultaneously, Scaling Agile in a Box educates change agents that support the transformation to reach a higher maturity level in enterprise agility. We first lead you in applying the Lean-Agile principles and practices of SAFe, to then allow you to lead yourself.

The Scaling Agile in a Box ensures readiness in three major areas:


  • Organizational readiness – Strategic alignment and setup of ART and teams

  • Content readiness – Program Portfolio Kanban established and agreement on PI backlog priorities

  • Facility readiness – The actual space, logistics and materials for the event

"In just 6 weeks your ART is up and running and you are ready for further rollout in your organization."

We look forward to working with you.
