What is Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)?
SAFe® for Lean Enterprises is a knowledge base of proven, integrated principles, practices, and competencies for Lean, Agile, and DevOps (www.scaledagileframework.com). Since 2011, hundreds of the world’s largest organizations have discovered its benefits: faster time-to-market, dramatic increases in productivity and quality, and more motivated and engaged employees. How does SAFe do this?

Despite this need for adaptability, many enterprises remain entrenched in legacy processes and outdated organizational hierarchies that impede their ability to rapidly detect and respond to signals from the marketplace.
Enterprises must embrace a more fluid way of working to compete effectively—one that quickly allows for new technologies to be assessed, tested, analyzed, and acted upon. This ‘fail fast, succeed faster’ mentality requires a fundamental shift in work culture and behavior (© Scaled Agile, Inc.).
