We’re very excited to announce a new SAFe for Government page on this website! When we released SAFe 4.6, we recognized that state, federal, and international government agencies have unique and specific challenges to Lean-Agile adoption that warranted the special government guidance we included in the 4.6 knowledge base. We have since enhanced that guidance substantially in our SAFe® for Government course. But we wanted to do more. In the course, we cite many great references.

Agile was definitely on leaders’ minds but they were skeptical that it could work in a sector that’s hamstrung by regulations and a challenging contracting environment. Fast forward to now and government adoption of Lean and Agile has accelerated to where most programs—80+ percent in the U.S. according to a 2017.

We got the message and immediately set to work designing this year’s event with that in mind. Biggest & most diverse program.
We recently crossed an important milestone. Over 200,000 people have now received training through our SAFe training and certification program. That’s a lot of folks who can speak, implement, and ‘be’ SAFe. A Lean-Agile community of this size—trained on globally standardized courses—has never existed until now.
