Preetam was brought into teams I was working with who were in an ongoing SAFe agile transformation. Preetam brought a lot of knowledge and enthusiasm to his role and helped the teams with some significant breakthroughs. One of the main challenges one team had struggled with was the release cycle, with a long over-hanging regression testing window; by analysing and tackling root causes and encouraging the team to look at the problem differently this cycle was shortened drastically. But more than this, the team for the first time started to feel empowered to tackle issues for themselves.
Another area where Preetam’s guidance was a revelation to the team was in his retrospective facilitation, where the team were really able to appreciate a fresh approach and start to own their journey to unlock the benefits of agility.
