Video: SAFe: The Scaled Agile Framework
The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is a popular process for enterprise-wide agile adoption. It is a pre-built framework that describes the individual roles, teams, activities, and artifacts necessary to scale agile from team to enterprise level while providing a cadence for teams to follow. Jared Richardson, an agile coach at a large insurance company in the midst of a SAFe adoption, brings practical lessons from that work to this session. After an overview of the SAFe framework, Jared describes how the work flows from executives to team members, and then relates that workflow to other agile processes. Learn SAFe anti-patterns and a cautionary message for anyone looking for the silver bullet solution to software challenges. Jared discusses the areas you’ll want to change or monitor to ensure your own efforts succeed. Leave with an understanding of SAFe and an awareness of potential problems—so you can avoid them.
