Achieving Regulatory and Industry Standards Compliance with SAFe



Note: This article is part of Extended SAFe Guidance and represents official SAFe content that cannot be accessed directly from the Big Picture.

Achieving Compliance with Lean-Agile Principles

SAFe compliance is shown as part of Solution Intent at the Large Solution Level on the Big Picture (see Figure 1.) Clicking on the Compliance text will link you to the standard guidance in SAFe. It describes the strategy, activities, and artifacts that allow teams to apply Lean-Agile development methods to build systems with the highest possible quality while ensuring they meet regulatory, industry, and other relevant standards.

Figure 1. Solution intent supports compliance.

A detailed white paper, Achieving Regulatory and Industry Standards Compliance with the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), supplements this guidance, which you can download here. There is also a SAFe webinar on the topic, with Q&A, which can be watched here.

SAFe Regulatory and Compliance Toolkit

The SAFe Regulatory and Compliance Toolkit is for SAFe Practice Consultants (SPCs) who must present SAFe in the context of industries and programs that must demonstrate compliance. It includes a PPT presentation as the primary tool, referencing the white paper and webinar. SPCs can download the compliance toolkit on the SAFe Community Platform here.
