The “ART” of Value Streams – Ken France Presents at SAFe Summit 2018
The concept of a Value Stream is fundamental to SAFe and how to optimally organize your Teams, ARTs, and Solution trains.

In this session, we’ll explore ways in which to prep for a successful Value Stream Workshop as well as what you should expect when you try to run your first one.
