It is a new year with a fresh and amazing new version of the SAFe, 5.0, has been released! So, I had planned some updates to the tool to simplify it and add some clarity to the concepts of velocity and capacity in relation to capacity planning and management for teams. I didn’t get around to it until now.
Enjoy the 2.0 version of the SAFe Capacity Planning Tool. It now includes a bonus (not included in SAFe) capacity allocation chart for use by teams.
Read the original article to find the new tool. The original version was released in 2017.

Artificial Limitations are not controls
Don’t limit your team to using just Scrum or Kanban. Don’t even limit yourself to using watered down versions of a combination of Scrum and Kanban. High-performance teams master both the empirical process framework and controls called Scrum, and the use of Kanban (system; Lean).
Continuous Learning (The Three Ways) & Empiricism
Continuous learning teams know how to scale these frameworks and systems using the SAFe and other scaling frameworks to suit the needs of the business and customer solution context (value). Learning teams know how to drive DEVOPS culture and practices through self-organization and self-management.
Scrumming it, the next step
If you are practicing Scrum, and using a Kanban to support the process framework it is helpful to walk the board during the Daily Stand-up (Scrum). Do this a few times a week rather than asking the three questions every day.
