Hi Folks, There’s no question that moving from the classroom to applying SAFe in real-world environments can be daunting. That’s why our teams are always laser-focused on helping the community successfully make that transition with new enablement resources.

After all, we can’t announce new features every day as we don’t want to be flooding everyone’s Inbox..
Three creative ways SAFe is leveraged in the field: Porsche Digital, Fadata, and University of South Florida

Here’s a great example from Germany. Healthcare platform provider Fadata.
Hi Folks, I recently sat down with one of my heroes, Mik Kersten, to talk about what it means to be a high-performing team. Mik wrote Project to Product, a breakthrough book that is influencing the way many businesses are tackling the challenges of digital disruption. His podcast series, Mik + 1, delivers “nothing-off-the-record” conversations with industry leaders that run the gamut from digital transformation to delivering software at scale. In our conversation, we focus.
One of the highlights of the SAFe Summit each year is hearing directly from our customers. Their experiences in applying SAFe to achieve business goals, and the lessons they learn along the way, motivate and inform the work that we do, and feed directly into the continued evolution of the Framework. And therefore, I am delighted to announce that eight new customer story videos, recorded for the SAFe Summit 2021, are now available on our.
Hello everyone, Each year as I prepare for our annual SAFe Summit, I pause a bit to think more deeply about the future of software and systems development, and how that will impact the evolution of SAFe. This year, I paid particular attention to a somewhat different source of information—specifically the financial markets—where I was looking to see what forward-thinking technology investments will likely alter the course of the industry. It started to become clear,.
Hi Folks, I am frequently asked the question, “Why is SAFe so popular?” My answer is usually simple. “Because of the business outcomes!” And I’m not being glib when I say that. Whether you’re building sports cars, spaceships, or healthcare systems, you have to be confident that your business will be better off with SAFe than without it, and that kind of confidence isn’t possible unless you are getting tangible results. I could point to.

Hi Folks, In just a couple of weeks, we’ll be gathering online for the two-day 2021 Global SAFe Summit. I personally look forward to the customer stories. I find it deeply inspiring—and enlightening—to see how people are working together and leveraging SAFe to achieve their mission, even in the most complex environments. This year we’re delighted to welcome these enterprises to the Summit stage: Featured Customer Stories Porsche For the first time at the Summit,.
SAFe 5 introduced the ‘dual operating system’ as an operating model to help enterprises compete and thrive in the digital age. This model has passed the test of time. It has now become a meaningful way to separate the concerns of developing and launching innovative new solutions (the responsibility of the Network) and efficiently running and growing a business that leverages those solutions (the responsibility of the Hierarchy). But at that time, that is where.
Business Agility is exhibited whenever an enterprise can quickly respond to an emergent business opportunity. In our latest update to the Business Agility article, we explicitly outlined the anatomy of this response. “Responding” is not a simple act; it consists of multiple steps that have to be executed in a fast and effective manner. Sound familiar? We are of course talking about a major value stream—in this case, the higher-level Business Agility Value Stream—a set.
