What is the Scaled Agile Framework?
The Scaled Agile Framework® (pronounced SAFe™) is an interactive knowledge base for implementing agile practices at enterprise scale. The “Big Picture” graphic highlights the individual roles, teams, activities and artifacts necessary to scale agile from the team to program to the enterprise level. This model of agile adoption has been elaborated by Dean Leffingwell and described in two books1. It has been successfully applied in programs of only 50-100 people, and in enterprises employing thousands of software developers.
