Announcing the new Japanese Big Picture

By Harry Koehnemann

Global markets represent some of our largest growth in adopting SAFe. To support this growth, we are looking at ways to support international adoption by providing translated versions of SAFe resources. SAFe adoption is rapidly growing in Japan. Perhaps it is because the Japanese team is one of our most fun teams at Scaled Agile, as shown by this picture of Tatsuro Koba-san and Hiroaki Nakaya-san from one of our PI Planning events below.

Because of their efforts and rapid growth, the Japanese Big Picture is our first translated resource. We owe a big thank you to the Globalization team led by Yuka Kurihara and the Japanese ICR team for creating this translation, particularly Koichi Arai-san, who is one of the original members.

Japanese SAFe Big Picture

You can access the new Japanese Big Picture from the Posters Page using the language selector underneath the Big Picture. We have also replaced multiple formats with a single, high-resolution PDF file that prints successfully in 8.5×11, A4, poster, and other sizes.

We expect to support additional languages and assets like the Implementation Roadmap soon. We are also experimenting with ways to provide translations for critical SAFe articles. We realize that the lack of translation in key languages is a barrier to SAFe adoption, and we want to do what we can to support those communities.

Stay SAFe!

Harry and the Framework Team
