    Hello All, keen in knowing if anyone has coached Sales or Marketing teams to use SAFe for alignment with other functions in the organization? Also would like to know the terminology specific to these buckets and how Rally was used for this? Thank you.

    Hi Madhavi, I've worked with stakeholders from various functions (including these), in almost all cases, the key objectives and benefit are the discussions on delivering on what they want (backlog/prioritisation, architecture runway discussions, etc), then deliver on quality/speed of delivery. I wouldn't try to reorganise other functions over which you have no control, instead find a way for your part of the organisation to best work with them. If you are working in an organisation with a full top-down Lean initiative then there is a chance to better redesign the organisation around value streams. It's unlikely you'd be able to do that (or make it stick) bottom-up. Rally structure would be best to follow the value streams at portfolio level and then sub-projects for each feature or component teams. Hope this helps. Anthony
