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.
As I mentioned in my Summit keynote blog post, nearly 1200 people from 27 countries attended the 2nd annual SAFe Summit last month. This is the largest gathering of the SAFe community of practice to date, and the wide variety of high-quality presentations being made in San Antonio were a big draw for many people. If you weren’t able to attend this year, or if you want to revisit and share some of the information,.
Hi Folks, If you’ve been around us for awhile, you know we know that SAFe is a work in progress, a living breathing thing—improving, progressing. While for practical reasons, we obviously can’t change the SAFe Big Picture every time we have a new idea (sometimes I miss those days!), we can and do innovate behind the BP as rapidly as our knowledge evolves. Currently, we have many active areas of new and ongoing IP development—SAFe.
Hi Folks, Good news is that SAFe is an effective, freely-revealed, and (deep) knowledge repository for Lean-Agile development at enterprise scale. Bad news is that, given the just-in-time and just-for-me random access nature of the knowledge base, it has a hard time ‘telling its own story.’ In other words, even with the Big Picture, it isn’t always obvious how the various pieces and parts work together to create the full system that makes SAFe actually work..
Hi Folks, Ben Linders from InfoQ recently interviewed us about SAFe Distilled, including our broader views about scaling Agile development in the large enterprise. The interview provides a good perspective on why businesses need SAFe and why we wrote the new SAFe Distilled book.’ Please click here to read the interview and to get a free preview of SAFe Distilled. We trust that you will find this interview to be interesting and useful and that it.
“The great thing about SAFe is that we have a structure in place to deliver better quality more rapidly. We can easily share with our customers and OEMs how Lean-Agile is a part of what we do.” —Celie Navatel, VP Quality and Customer Satisfaction at Thales InFlyt Experience Breaking free from large batches is tough for any organization—and all the more so when you’re developing complex hardware and software solutions in the highly regulated airline.
Hello folks, We are pleased to announce the release of the ‘SAFe 4.5 Introduction’ white paper. It can be downloaded here. The white paper provides a high-level overview of the Scaled Agile Framework® and describes its core values, principles, practices, and strategy for implementation. The white paper also introduces the four new configurations of SAFe: Full SAFe, Large Solution SAFe, Portfolio SAFe and Essential SAFe—which is the basic building block for all other SAFe configurations and describes.
