Mapping Organizational Roles to SAFe® Roles

Presented by Harry Koehnemann, SAFe Fellow and Principal Consultant with Scaled Agile.

Mapping of traditional development roles to the new ones in SAFe seems theoretically simple but, in practice, it can be quite challenging. Organizations cannot use a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to move people into a new SAFe role based on their current one (for example, from Project Manager to Scrum Master). Role mapping requires consideration of not only hard and soft skills, but also key competencies, and other attributes.

A successful transition strategy requires that people understand the SAFe transformation vision and timing, how their role will change, and most importantly that they feel secure in their job. This talk explores the importance and challenges of mapping organizational roles to SAFe roles. We will also discuss how to create the transformation vision that motivates and compels people to participate and how to inform people about the new SAFe roles.
