Why Scaled Agile Framework®, SAFe® is needed?

We live in a faster economic era that is fueled through technology, organisations that can best harness the advances in technology and respond to customer needs will reap the rewards. These technological advances are built on software and systems in every business, driving innovation, new business models and ways of working. Many organisations fail or are slow to benefit from these technology advancements because they struggle to develop software and systems. Survival is not mandatory; organisations that understand the urgency and the need for change adopt new ways of working, thrive while others struggle and may be extinct.

The question you are asking, "We have agile teams, how do we scale?"

Scaling Approach

Scaling Agile -State of Agile 14th survey

Leaders have experienced or heard of benefits that agile teams are achieving and are asking what if we could replicate the team level benefits across the whole organisation and achieve business agility. Companies that can scale up effectively will gain significant benefits.

The agile community has been discussing agile at scale for some time and is still debating with different scaling frameworks, Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS Larman and Vodde, 2013), Disciplined Agile (DA Ambler and Lines, 2012), Nexus (Schwaber 2016), Scrum at Scale (S@S Sutherland 2018) and Scaled Agile Framework®, SAFe® (Leffingwell 2011 first version).
By far, the most widely used, fully-featured and successful scaling framework is the Scaled Agile Framework®, SAFe® from Scaled Agile Inc.

SAFe® is an online, freely revealed knowledge base of proven success patterns for implementing Lean-Agile software and systems development at enterprise scale. It provides comprehensive guidance for work at the enterprise Portfolio, Value Stream, Program, and Team levels. The experiential role-based SAFe® curriculum builds the necessary depth of knowledge and invaluable training for implementing SAFe successfully.

How to start

"Many leaders pride themselves on setting the high-level direction and staying out of the details. But the big picture, hands-off leadership isn’t likely to work in a change situation because the most challenging part of change—the paralysing part—is in the details.

Any successful change requires a translation of ambiguous goals into concrete behaviours. To make a switch, you need to script the critical moves." —Dan and Chip Heath, Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is Hard.

Achieving business agility and becoming a Lean-Agile organisation requires leadership to embrace the Lean-Agile mindset and behaviours that exhibit the Lean-Agile Principles underpinning SAFe through their daily actions.

Implementing the changes necessary to become a Lean-Agile organisation is substantial and there is no one way to achieve it.

It's your transformation we help you accelerate your journey.
