Adopt and Adapt, or maybe just Adapt

Mar 3, 2022 · Sydney, Australia

Hi SAFe Agilists,

This month we will hear from Matthew Farrelly about his experience with the Adopt and Adapt approach to implement SAFe.

About the talk:
One of SAFe's approaches is Adopt and Adapt, meaning that SAFe knows best and you should start with best practice, and then adapt away from best practice if your team needs the compromise. This is certainly a way to shift a team's processes rapidly. However, does this align with what we know about human behaviour and change management? Having built high performance teams in the past, my goal is to present a defence for simply adapting to SAFe practices, ironically through another of SAFe's approaches, using persuasion instead of authority.

About the speaker:
Matthew Farrelly is the Delivery Capability Lead for the DXC Digital Transformation Centre in the ACT. He is an experienced Business Manager, ScrumMaster and Technology Specialist having spent over a decade in the Virtual Reality industry. Recognised as a thought leader and speaker on VR/AR/XR. Matthew has also co-authored journal papers on topics of VR in education and health.

Kind regards,
The Organizers
