InfoQ Interview with Richard Knaster and Dean Leffingwell
Ben Linders from InfoQ recently interviewed us about SAFe Distilled, including our broader views about scaling Agile development in the large enterprise. The interview provides a good perspective on why businesses need SAFe and why we wrote the new SAFe Distilled book.’ Please click here to read the interview and to get a free preview of SAFe Distilled.
We trust that you will find this interview to be interesting and useful and that it will help you along your SAFe learning journey, and thereby make your workplace truly engaging, innovative, more productive, and fun.
We understand that the SAFe body of knowledge can be daunting, and it isn’t that easy to fully understand by just reading articles on the site. Neither the website itself nor the SAFe 4.0 Reference Guide can really ‘tell the story.’
That’s why we wrote SAFe 4.0 Distilled: Applying the Scaled Agile Framework for Lean Software and Systems Engineering. It’s the first book that guides you through SAFe, so you can learn how each component of the Framework works together to enable the kind of business results you see in our case studies. It will help you understand how to think about the Framework, how to plan, how to train and mobilize a Lean-Agile workforce, and what to expect as you roll out SAFe in your enterprise.
SAFe Distilled is an excellent supplement to formal training and certification. Regardless of whether you’re just starting out, or are engaged in a mature implementation, we have no doubt you’ll find something valuable that will enhance your experience with SAFe.
Published by Addison-Wesley Professional, SAFe Distilled is available in paperback, eBook, and Kindle formats at most major retailers. Learn more about SAFe Distilled, and make sure to use the code, SAFEBOOKS, to save 35 percent off the list price when you purchase from InformIT.com.
