Earlier this year we spiked a concept called Essential SAFe, a set of minimal practices without which SAFe might no longer be ‘safe’.

Revised Glossary The SAFe glossary has been updated to make it clearer, shorter, simpler and easier to read, as well as preparing it for a localization spike. The spike will cover Spanish, French and Simplified Chinese. If the spike goes well, the glossary will be translated into a total of 14 languages! 2. New Resources Menu The menu’s have.
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.

Hello folks, For the last month or so, we (ScaledAgile,Inc.) have been going though our 2017 planning strategic planning process, adhering as strictly as possible to SAFe guidance. We’ve established the strategic themes, vision and budgets for our two primary value streams: framework and courseware. 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.
