SAFe Foundations makeover delivers faster, simpler introduction to SAFe
Steve Jobs notes that simplicity is harder than complexity. We get that. With a framework as robust as SAFe, distilling the essence of the underlying concepts into the shortest possible format can prove to be daunting, but with this latest release of the SAFe Foundations 4.0 video, I think we’ve met the challenge.
The video has had an extreme makeover and should be a great tool for anyone tasked with communicating the concepts behind SAFe. Compared to its predecessor—which has long been our most popular download and video—the new presentation is shorter (23-minutes), and more professionally produced with animations and a cleaner visual presentation. I also get to loosen up a bit, and present SAFe in a more informal, easy-to-understand manner that makes it more accessible for people learning about SAFe for the first time. It covers a high-level overview of the underlying concepts of SAFe: Agile development, systems thinking, and Lean product development, as well as next steps and resources for implementation. (And did I mention its only 23 minutes!)
I’m fairly happy with it, and hope you will be too. Check it out here, and note that you can also download the accompanying slide presentation as well. Now in 16×9 format.
