Our modern world runs on software. In order to keep pace, we practitioners must build increasingly complex and sophisticated software systems. Doing so requires larger teams and continuously rethinking the methods and practices – part art, science, engineering, mathematics, social science – that we use to organize and manage these important activities. The Scaled Agile Framework (pronounced “SAFe”) is an interactive knowledge base for implementing agile practices at enterprise scale. In this talk Drew Jemilo will present an overview of SAFe and the principles behind it, discuss the problems it is designed to solve, outline how development organizations can go about adopting SAFe, and describe its current adoption and success rate in enterprises.
