What is SAFe®?

Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) will help you and your company with the challenges around developing and releasing products and systems in a bigger scale at the shortest possible timeframe.

You will synchronize and align deliveries from multiple agile teams. As SAFe is scalable and configurable it is possible for organizations to tailor the way of working according to business needs.

SAFe supports small scale organizations between 50-125 practitioners as well as complex environments which requires thousands of practitioners.

SAFe describes roles, responsibilities, artefacts and activities that are necessary to conduct large scale Lean-Agile development.

Improved result of system development

SAFe way of working is well established and has evolved through practice and refinement to achieve a comprehensive way to develop complex systems and software in a Lean-Agile way. The foundation of the framework has three primary sources of knowledge: Agile development, System thinking and Lean product development.

You will find guidance using SAFe for these kinds of questions:

  • How can we as a company reach our technical and business goals?
  • How can we improve our economical result through better decisions?
  • How can we continuously deliver customer value through our organization by letting them plan and execute?
  • How do we improve our customer’s satisfaction by improving the quality of our solution?
  • How will we implement the Lean-Agile Way-of-Working throughout our whole organization, from business units to the single team, to improve the customer value we deliver?
  • How can Value Streams help us deliver in a structured and efficient way without the delays that normally occurs in organizations burdened by bureaucracy and strict hierarchy?
  • How can we minimize and handle dependencies between teams, programs, and Value Streams?
  • How do we create a culture that promotes collaboration, innovation, and relentless improvement?
  • How can we keep people motivated in what they are doing?
  • What changes do we need to do to promote risk taking, tolerate failures, and encourage lessons learned?
  • How can encourage the teams to enforce continuous improvement?
  • How do we know what our agile teams are up to? Can we measure their efficiency?

By implementing SAFe and utilize its set of values, principles and practices, you can handle questions like these above and reach great benefit for the company, the teams and for you as well!
