Community News Essential SAFe

Hi Folks,

A couple of days ago I delivered a keynote at Mile High Agile, “10 Essential Scaling Patterns We Can (Probably) All Agree On.”

Judging from the size of the audience—and from the general buzz throughout the conferences we’ve been attending—there’s no question that the topic of scaling has captured much of the mindshare in the Agile community. Afterall, what enterprise wouldn’t want to enjoy the business and personal benefits of self-organization, higher quality and productivity, and the intrinsic motivation of effective Agile teams?

It is the how that is the question, and on that there are many opinions.

In the spirit of the Mile High conference, ‘Elevating Agile Organizations,’ I wanted to move the discussion beyond a specific method or framework, and instead share the common scaling patterns that we’ve seen perform most effectively when implementing Lean-Agile development at enterprise scale. Thanks to our friends from SolutionsIQ, I was invited to explore the subject in an Agile Amped podcast with Howard Sublett at the conference.

I also had the chance to discuss some of the new things we are working on, because there will always be a next version of SAFe!

You can access the 28-minute podcast here. And if the subject of a ‘essential patterns’ interests you, visit the Essential SAFe guidance article.

Stay SAFe!
—Dean
