Large Solution level key to managing diverse entities for Finland’s largest telecom provider

 "SAFe seemed like a 1-to-1 match for us. Someone had already come up with a model to address our needs, which brought better requirements management, prioritization, governance, and a common language for the entire organization." 
Risto Reinikainen, Head of Lean Agile Center of Excellence

In the competitive, fast-moving telecom market, Telia Finland sought to deliver more capabilities to customers, but long-standing waterfall methods kept it from moving forward. Since moving to SAFe, the company reports quantitative and qualitative results to show its progress:

  • 39% more capabilities
  • 34% less cost
  • 94% accuracy delivering on commitments for a major rebranding
  • Teams deliver incrementally and more often
  • People are more engaged in, and satisfied with, their work
There’s an inspiring aspect to their story that has to do with a major rebranding effort—literally changing the company’s look overnight—that was so well executed the transition appeared seamless to customers and the public.
