    To succeed today, businesses need to make the most of Agile practices at scale. But there’s often a disconnect between strategy and execution, and it’s challenging to manage and visualize data across teams and tools of the entire organization. 

    Come and hear the story of Demant. They chose to use SAFe and Jira Align to improve agility across their organization. You’ll understand the complexity of their setup, and how fast they were able to implement both SAFe and Jira Align. They’ll tell you about their strategy for release trains and share their experience and learnings.

    There will be plenty of time to ask questions.

    During this seminar, you will learn:

    • About the challenges and solutions to scale Agile
    • How a healthcare group implemented Jira Align
    • Tips and pitfalls to avoid when implementing SAFe and Jira Align

    Start your day on the right foot! Join us for fresh coffee, a good breakfast, and hear a real use case to scale Agile with Jira Align.
