SAFe in 8 Pictures 4.0

SAFe Resources

Hello everyone,

Since its release last September, SAFe in 8 Pictures has been one of our most frequently downloaded presentations. For those who are unfamiliar with it, SAFe in 8 Pictures is a lightweight tool for introducing the Scaled Agile Framework.  Have you ever had the need to:

  • Introduce SAFe to visual learners
  • Tailor your presentation based on your audience without changing a word
  • Pivot when conversation goes in an unanticipated direction

This unique SAFe PowerPoint presentation contains no bullets: only 8 pictures and 16 words. The graphical nature of SAFe in 8 Pictures allows you to tailor your talk to any audience. Behind it are robust speaker notes to get you started quickly. From there, you can continue building your knowledge.

SAFe in 8 Pictures let you walk your audience through: (1) the levels, (2) the people, (3) the backlogs, (4) the cadence, (5) quality, (6) relentless improvement, (7) value delivery, and (8) the full Big Picture.

We’ve just posted the latest version here on the Scaled Agile Framework site. I invite you to download it and find new ways to be SAFe.

      Hi Thomas:

      We do not yet have a 4.5 version of SAFe in 8 pictures. So far, it hasn’t WSJF’d to the top.

      If you can help us understand the need, perhaps the priority could be changed in the future.

        I find the 8 pages very usefull in explaining the SAFe-model from a number of perspectives, instead of explaining everything at once, so it sinks in better. Since we are going with version 4.5., and have the need to communicate the model to management NOW, it would – for me – be very usefull with a version 4.5. I assume adopters outthere have a similar need. I understand the prioritization though. Thanks for the feedback.
