Hello Folks, When we announced that SAFe 4.5 was going live about a year ago, we mentioned that we would be retiring SAFe 4.0. This is in support of our policy of supporting prior versions of the Framework for one year following the introduction of a new version. We are now beginning the retirement process for SAFe 4.0 with full retirement set for October 31, 2018. There are a few things that I want you to be.

Hello folks, The 12th Annual State of Agile Report has just been released by VersionOne. The report found that SAFe maintains its top position in ‘Scaling Methods and Approaches,’ with nearly one-third (29%) of respondents saying that SAFe is the method they “follow most closely.” But we’re even more pleased that the report validates our current and future path. The report noted that 75% of respondents said that accelerating software delivery was the reason they were adopting.
Hi Folks, To use an idiom (even when they are not recommended!), implementing a SAFe Lean portfolio can be “the long pole in the tent” in building the SAFe Lean Enterprise. It’s one of the hardest and most impactful things you can do to ‘right size’ the tent for an enterprise portfolio. What’s more, while there is a lot of guidance in SAFe and in the Roadmap, each implementation has to be ‘purpose built’ for.
Hello Folks, We’ve been busy at Scaled Agile, preparing for two SAFe Summits coming up this year and ongoing course development. But we wanted to take a moment to call out some impressive new thought leadership developed by members of the SAFe community. SAFe Fellow and SPCT Mark Richards posted a new blog, ‘Effective Feature Templates for SAFe.’ He notes that features are the key vehicle for value flow in SAFe, yet they are also.
Hi Folks, The Lean Startup Cycle plays a key role in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) in helping to achieve business agility and reduce waste. Its highly iterative cycle provides the opportunity to quickly evaluate large initiatives and measure viability, but it requires a different form of accounting than what’s been used in the past. Senior Consultant and SPCT Joe Vallone has just published a new guidance article, Applied Innovation Accounting in SAFe, that describes.
Last June, we released SAFe Version 4.5 of SAFe, bringing DevOps and Continuous Delivery to the forefront. It is our firm belief that in order to accelerate time-to-market, DevOps and Continuous Delivery must be a core competency of every Agile Release Train (ART). Now, with the release of the new two-day course SAFe DevOps with SAFe DevOps Practitioner (SDP) certification, we have the right training to support this mission. This course combines DevOps with the power of.
With over 11,000 downloads to date, SAFe® Foundations has been one of our most popular PowerPoint presentations. It’s easy to see why as it’s often used to introduce people to the Framework. So we decided to give it a makeover, including a new title. Introducing the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) for Lean Enterprises is framed on one of the biggest concerns in today’s business environment – digital disruption. It’s more clear than ever that every.
Hello everyone, Those of us involved in courseware development at Scaled Agile strive to keep learning more about how to teach and convey the key concepts of the Framework. This is an important aspect of how we apply the spirit of continuous learning. Feedback from the community is critical to that effort and we’re excited to announce updates to the Leading SAFe® and Implementing SAFe® courses based on our learnings and input we’ve received since introducing.
Hi Folks, The Scaled Agile Framework has many moving parts but the overarching intent is to deliver value quickly, cost-effectively, and on target. Sometimes it’s hard to connect the dots, but I wanted to call out a couple of SAFe Summit presentations from SAFe Fellows and Principal Consultants Inbar Oren and Richard Knaster that help tie together two key Framework elements, the Continuous Delivery Pipeline and DevOps. The Continuous Delivery Pipeline directly supports faster value.
