Hello folks: The upcoming release of SAFe 5.0 and the recent updates to the Lean Portfolio Management (LPM) class have advanced our thinking around establishing and documenting the Portfolio Vision, which is a new artifact in V5.0.

To that end, we’ve just.
“The Lean Portfolio Management course was incredibly useful for our implementation of SAFe at Travelport. The format and structure of the course enabled us to create our LPM implementation roadmap, and leave with next steps clearly articulated and actionable.

Hi Folks, The SAFe knowledge base is an invaluable resource for people who build software and systems, however, navigating the guidance can be daunting for the uninitiated. SAFe is a robust framework supported by hundreds of web pages. Where do you start? In what order should you read the articles? What information is really important to you and when? We get it. There’s a Wikipedia aspect to the SAFe body of knowledge that takes time.

Hello Folks: We are pleased to announce the implementation of a new search engine on the SAFe website that improves the user experience.

Some of the new search features include: Spelling Correction: spelling errors won’t affect your search Bigram Matching: high heels = highheels Stemming: epic = epics Synonyms: car = vehicle Phrase Matching: “fast food” does not.
Hello folks! Our community is continually growing as evidenced by over 2,000,000 annual visitors who come to the SAFe Framework website.
