Is there a standard way to Validate Lean Agile and SAFe implementation in Jira Align?

Hi @Reddy,

Jira Align is highly in sync with the Scaled Agile Framework and Lean Agile principles. This is why we must be SAFe Program Consultants (SPCs) in order to effectively implement Jira Align.

As part of a standard implementation effort, the Enterprise Solution Architect (or equivalent) who implemented and configured Jira Align for your company would have modeled Jira Align based on the guidance given by your company. That would have included how closely aligned to SAFe the configuration was intended to be.

Shy of the alignment happening during initial implementation/configuration, there is no documented standard way for an organization to validate alignment to SAFe. I would suggest you reach out to your implementation team to ask them this question.

A good way to align with SAFe going forward is to use the Framework Map functionality in Jira Align as a base level-setting and alignment with the desired framework.


I'm not sure what the "validate" means in this question, but I am 100% with you on "get in SPCs and talk to them about how you would want to work"

@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_- I interpreted the "validate" request as asking if there is a way to verify that a client has set up Jira Align terminology, value streams (operational and developmental), work levels, etc. in alignment with SAFe and lean agile recommendations.

I can see that, but it's not what I would guess at for the meaning of "validate" here.  Hence the request for more information, I don't think there's enough for us to judge much.  (But your answer is a really good way to get the other information we might need out)
