This is a milestone moment in a SAFe rollout as it covers the steps that need to be taken to actually launch the first ART, and trigger the business benefits that can be had from the new way of working.

Foundations SAFe Resources SAFe Updates

Hi Folks, Many talk about how HR/People Operations is different with Agile, but few have opined on specifically HOW it’s different, and what specific practices need to evolve to replace traditional performance reviews and the like.

SAFe Resources SAFe Updates

Hi Folks, Some of you already know that one of my technical pursuits over the last few years has been to better understand and describe the way in which enterprises can apply Agile methods to building big and important systems, specifically “high assurance” systems that have an unacceptably high social or economic cost of failure.

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.

SAFe Resources SAFe Updates

With so many enterprises adopting SAFe over the years, we’ve learned what works, what doesn’t, and what the success stories have in common. One thing we know for certain—implementations that deliver results may vary somewhat in context and execution, but all share a common attribute; a workforce well trained and educated in SAFe practices, and a desire for continuous learning and improvement. Experience tells us that face-to-face training is ideal, but realities in the field.

Hi All, Introducing SAFe to people that are unfamiliar with it can sometimes seem like a daunting task. People build really big systems with SAFe, so SAFe is not a trivial framework. As part of our efforts to make SAFe more accessible (for one such example, see the blog post on Essential SAFe), we’ve just released a short, informal five-minute video, which gives a brief overview of SAFe and how it works. You can find it here. SPCs have.
