Introducing a preview of SAFe 5.0

Community News SAFe Updates

Hello Folks, On behalf of the entire Scaled Agile team and the SAFe Contributors, we are delighted to announce a preview of SAFe® 5.0 for Lean Enterprises. Why is this update important? Globalization, fast-moving markets, disruption, the unprecedented pace of technological innovation. Organizations know that they need to transform—now—to compete. But their existing business models, organizational hierarchy, and technology infrastructure simply can’t keep up with how quickly the company needs to adapt. Agile product delivery isn’t enough. You need business agility..

We jumped at the chance to give back to this community by donating the course licenses. Microsoft decided to offer the course during its 2019 hackathon in July for a few.

SAFe Updates

At the recent 2019 European SAFe® Summit, we did something we’ve never done before – we used the event to live-capture baseline metrics to determine how close organizations are to achieving true business (not just technical) agility. After Dean’s keynote presentation, we invited attendees to take a survey about business agility—and 164 of them did. To understand where the respondents were coming from, we included two questions about company size and the size of their.

SAFe® for Government 4.6.1 released!

SAFe Updates

Last October, we released the first SAFe® for Government course with an initial MVP design focused on the U.S. federal market. Even before the course launched, we began getting feedback from our SPCs working with governments outside the U.S., as well as interest from state governments.
