Forrester Research, a market research and advisory firm, began its Rational Team Concert and Agile journey three years ago. In that time, the development teams have moved from using RTC as a solution for tracking bugs and small RFEs into using it as a platform for collaboration across the entire business. Recently, the teams have adopted key SAFe principles and a new portfolio governance mechanism, enabling a unified cross-portfolio prioritization process for the first time. The transformation has allowed Forrester to more than double its story point velocities, reduce the number of unplanned requests, and meet and show deadline objectives to outside stakeholders.
