Use Cases for Solution Intent

Solution Intent is an incredibly useful but often impenetrable part of SAFe. It is presented as part of SAFe’s large solution layer and is absolutely essential if you are building large, complex, safety critical systems or are required to maintain any form traceability.

It’s also the best way to maintain a holistic overview of what your system does, and how it does it, particularly if you need to maintain any kind of permanent record.

In our many years of applying SAFe to some of the world’s biggest and most complex systems (such as the Square Kilometre Array – the world’s largest science facility) we found use cases to be the best way to structure, bound, access, evolve and maintain your Solution Intent whilst maintaining your agility.
