VERY Short Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) Overview for Leankit All Hands Meeting

During a visit to LeanKit (The company behind the awesome visualization kanban tool LeanKit Kanban) this week I was asked to deliver a very short overview of SAFe, what trends I see in the market around it, how it connects to Kanban, etc. Here it is... Note this isn't self-explanatory. So if you're interested in what I meant to say here, reach out. Maybe I'll follow up with a blog post at some time if there's enough interest.

  11. 11. My take on a SAFe value statement… For Early/late majority software/IT/technology-heavy enterprises who Develop and maintain LARGE COMPLEX products or services the Scaled Agile Framework is a Collection of lean/agile process and implementation best practices that Helps these enterprises improve their business agility despite huge change management and technology/process obstacles in their context Unlike Other scaling frameworks that assume the ability and willingness to drive revolutionary dramatic change in the organization and mostly ignore current culture and roles in the organization our solution Is able to provide a reasonable evolutionary starting point to the business agility journey flexible enough to allow organizations to evolve towards a truly lean/agile enterprise. It provides people currently holding roles in the organization a clear mapping to their new role in the agile enterprise and a path to making this change.
