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 and with shorter lead time than using the traditional waterfall method.

You will be able to synchronize and adapt the deliverables for several teams at the same time. As SAFe is configurable and scalable you can select the level of implementation based on your business size and needs. SAFe supports everything from a delivery organization with 50-125 users to large scale corporations, handling complex system solutions with thousands of people involved.

In SAFe you will find the roles, responsibilities, artefacts, and events that are necessary to execute an upscaled Lean-Agile product delivery.
