Agile organisations: adaptive, flexible and one step ahead of the competition

The leading framework for agile scaling Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) is a knowledge base of proven, integrated principles, practices and competencies for Lean, Agile and DevOps. SAFe® is more than the sum of its parts and provides a configurable framework. It helps organisations bring new products, services and solutions to market in the shortest yet most sustainable lead time. It is a system that manages the roles, responsibilities and activities necessary to achieve a sustainable technological advantage. SAFe® combines agility with lean product development, DevOps and systems thinking. It synchronises business alignment and collaboration across multiple Agile teams. SAFe® improves agility and responsiveness by increasing productivity, time-to-market, quality, employee engagement and more.

SAFe® was first elaborated in books and blogs by Dean Leffingwell in 2011. The framework provides guidance for working at the enterprise portfolio, value stream, programme and team levels. The latest version SAFe 5.1 was introduced in early 2021.

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) is, along with LeSS®, one of the most widespread frameworks for scaling Scrum or agile. SAFe® builds on Lean and offers an agile framework for the team level, the programme level and the entire organisation (portfolio level).
