Foundations SAFe Resources SAFe Updates

foundations_4_thumpOne of our most popular downloads, SAFe Foundations, has now been fully updated to include the new concepts in SAFe 4.0. This free slide presentation is for those who wish to better understand the purpose and foundations of the Framework, its basis in Lean and Agile, the business benefits that it can deliver, and guidance for implementation.

You can use this deck in your business context, but like the Framework itself, this material is copyrighted and usage guidance and restrictions apply.

There’s also a companion video—narrated by yours truly—that provides a deeper understanding of Foundations deck. In the video, I discuss:

  • What it means to embrace and apply Lean-Agile values and principles
  • Building incrementally to accelerate value delivery
  • Taking an economic view
  • Implementing Lean-Agile practices
  • 3 and 4-Level SAFe to configure to complexity of solution, small or large
  • Organizing around value at the Portfolio level
  • Building value with Agile Release Trains (ARTs)
  • Taking a systems view
  • How Agile teams power the train
  • Synchronizing with PI Planning
  • Coordinating large-scale value delivery
  • Leading the implementation to achieve business results

Stay SAFe!
–Dean and Team
