SAFe 5 for Lean Enterprises
You have agile teams who have realised local benefits of agile ways of working using Scrum, Kanban, eXtreme Programming; you are now looking for a way to build on this sound foundation to go beyond local benefits and achieve organisational agility.
Many organisations will offer to help you, but few have the experience and the proven track record of Value Glide to help you take a system-wide view of the work and achieve organisational agility.
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.
We rely on software in our day to day lives. All organisations are in the software business. We need a better system of work and delivery of software-based services to make the world a better place. Value Glide enables organisations who build these software-based services to take a system-wide view through training and coaching and accelerates delivery at scale using the Scaled Agile Framework® and achieve organisational agility.
There are numerous Case Studies in different industries and many enterprises —large and small— who are getting outstanding business benefits from applying SAFe®.

"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.
