Scaled Agile Framework (SAFE)

Has anyone implemented SAFE using JIRA? We are currently struggling with the fact that what JIRA calls 'Epic' is really a 'Feature' in SAFE. The term 'Epic' in SAFE is a concept within the Portfolio level, and is not the same as a 'Feature'.

We would prefer to stick with the terminology set forth by our chosen methodology (SAFE) and not let a tool like JIRA drive such decisions.

Any feedback on how other teams are resolving the concept naming discrepancies? Also, are there any resources that discuss using SAFE along with JIRA?

We use BigPicture for our Safe Implamentation.   we also struggled with the naming but ultimately found it easier to adopt the terminology of the products opposed try to align the process.   we did create a cheat sheet for the "non-advanced" users.

Hi Adnan and others,

Were you successful implementing SAFe using JIRA? What add-ons did you end up using? Any other recommendations?

Thanks,

Carlos

We used bigPicture and BigPicture Enterprise.  It has worked well for us!

Hello Adnan:

There is a way to implement the SAFe terminology but you have to modify the translations file within Jira.

Our Jira environment is hosted by cPrime and they have been great in helping us modify the english translations file to change "Epic" to "Feature" so that it reflects in team boards, issue types, and "epic" fields.  Now everything just says "Feature" and its great!

We use Portfolio for Jira instead of Big Picture.

EDIT:  They have their own plugin that they use:  https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1218959/safe-epic-to-feature-translator-for-jira?hosting=server&tab=overview
