The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) was designed to address the most challenging scaling problems that many organizations face by leveraging Agile development, Lean product development, and systems thinking. SAFe synchronizes alignment, collaboration, and delivery for large numbers of Agile teams.
It supports both software and systems development, from the modest scale of well under 100 practitioners to those building the largest software solutions and most complex cyber-physical systems.But the size and complexity can be daunting, and not every implementation realizes the full business benefits that others achieve. This is often because the most essential practices have been skipped. So how much of SAFe does an enterprise have to implement to get the business benefits? After all, it’s a big framework, and the practices aren’t prioritized. How would an enterprise know what’s essential?
In this session, Jane will share stories from real SAFe implementations that benefited from refocusing on the essential elements of SAFe to accelerate achievement of their desired business outcomes.
