As we continually improve SAFe to better meet the needs of our customers, there comes a time when it’s no longer practical to support older versions of the Framework. This is part of any technology product’s lifecycle, and it is no different with SAFe. On December 30, 2016, all SAFe 3.0 courseware and materials will be retired.

In so doing, we also needed to establish the KPIs which define the expected results and returns from each value stream. So the model is: strategic themes affect value stream vision, which.
Two short weeks ago, over 400 attendees from 17 countries trekked to Colorado for the first SAFe Summit, making it the largest gathering of its kind to focus exclusively on SAFe and its community of practice. It was an inspiring moment in SAFe’s history, humbling for those of us who have a hand in building the Framework, and one that we hope will have a long-lasting positive impact on those who attended. Given SAFe’s maturity.
As we all know, Scrum Masters are critical players in the SAFe Lean-Agile enterprise. They can make all the difference when it comes to an effective SAFe implementation. Indeed, the role of the Scrum Master in the SAFe enterprise is larger than with traditional Scrum, as a deep knowledge of SAFe is essential when it comes to producing optimal results for the business. To this end, we are releasing SAFe® 4.0 Scrum Master, complete with SAFe.

“It usually takes about 36 months to bring a new TV platform to market but we had a minimally viable product in 8-10 months and brought the full product to market in 18 months. SAFe helped our relatively small team build and run a world-class product and guided us when in doubt, showing us the way toward Agile product development flow.” —Simon Berg, Agile Program Manager, Swisscom Entertainment Projects Congratulations to Swisscom for developing an.
Hi Folks, As you can probably imagine, we are quite relieved to have finally published the SAFe 4.0 Reference Guide. But after our five-minute celebration we went right back to work on some other projects, one of which is another SAFe book that Richard and I are collaborating on.
