Businesses who want better alignment, cadence, and collaboration across their organization choose Scaled Agile Partners who are trained and certified in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) – a knowledge base of proven, integrated techniques for implementing Lean-Agile software development and support at scale.

ICC is a SAFe Transformation Partner at the Gold level, which represents the most experienced Scaled Agile Partners who have mastered Agile transformation for our clients.

What to expect from a SAFe Gold Partner

Application of SAFe principles continues to grow, outpacing any other approach to delivering Agile at scale. ICC clients including large insurance and healthcare companies have come to us for advice and guidance on their Agile initiatives. We’ve implemented SAFe practices with them, helping these clients achieve large-scale improvements across their organization including:

  • Shortened planning and implementation intervals for software projects
  • Better collaboration across teams
  • Faster time to market
  • Improved large-scale delivery

Using the SAFe Agile Framework, you can create a continuous value stream that delivers new software capabilities at the speed of business. What took three to 12 months to obtain approval and funding for a project now takes only three to 12 weeks with the SAFe Agile model. With this approach, you already have the team in place and funded to work on the highest prioritized ideas.

You and your customers both benefit

Scaled Agile Partners are uniquely qualified to support enterprises and government agencies through every phase of a Lean-Agile transformation. As a Gold Transformation Partner, ICC has special access to SAFe intellectual property, toolkits, enablement, and downloads for your successful Agile implementation. We also have priority access to Scaled Agile Fellows and other experts for consulting, training, and client site visits.

Plus, ICC has our own Certified SAFe Program Consultants who offer “train the trainer” sessions when you want to build a SAFe Agile program of your own.

Your customers also benefit when you choose a SAFe Gold Transformation Partner. You’ll be able to quickly offer them new products and services while delivering rapid response to their needs and requests. 

In a real-world example, we partnered with an ICC client in the information services industry to apply SAFe practices and principles to their planning and delivery. The results: 40 percent faster service delivery to their customers.
