SAFe Version 3.0 Available Through December 2016
The new version of the Framework, SAFe 4.0 for Lean Software and Systems Engineering, provides greater modularity than its predecessor with a dynamic collapse/expand capability. The collapsed view, “3-Level SAFe,” is backwards compatible with Version 3.0, preserving the skill sets of current SAFe practitioners, and providing an easy upgrade path for enterprises invested in the 3.0 version of the Framework.
We encourage you to upgrade to SAFe 4.0 to take advantage of the new features, but recognize that there are enterprises that will need the ‘classic’ 3.0 version for some time to come, so it will be supported throughout 2016, and is available at v3.scaledagileframework.com.
The complete set of 3.0 courseware—Leading SAFe, SAFe Scrum XP, PM/PO, and PPM—will continue to be available as well.
