Interested in finding out how to scale agile faster, easier and smarter using the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe)? If so, make sure you watch this two-part webinar series!
Scrum, XP, Kanban and related methods have been proven to provide step changes in productivity and quality for software teams. However, these methods do not have the native constructs necessary to scale across the enterprise. What the industry desperately needs is a solution that moves from a set of simplistic, disparate, development-centric methods, to a scalable, unified approach that addresses the complex constructs and additional stakeholders in the organization – and accelerates the realization of enterprise-class product or service initiatives via aligned and cooperative solution development.
