Advantages of the Scaling Agile Blueprint

The Blueprint is ideal for customers who want to start scaled-agile development on the foundation of Jira Software.

  • Flexibility: You don’t get one big product, but a configuration in your Jira system. The Blueprint follows elements from SAFe®, but the flexibility of Jira still allows you to customize the setup according to individual needs.
  • Support: in addition to the Jira configuration, you will receive an introduction to the product and assistance with the first steps (e.g. support backlog grooming, PI planning accompaniment, etc.).
  • Best Practices: the Blueprint is set up to consistently follow key “best practices”.
  • Targeted: You can select targeted packages that fit your needs.
