Download the Big Picture
Subject to the important notice below, you can download a copy of the SAFe Big Picture in multiple formats. There are four configurations, each designed to meet the needs of every possible implementation scenario, from the most basic to the most complex. Not sure which one is right for you? Click here to learn more.
Choose from four configurations
Full SAFe represents the most comprehensive configuration. It supports building large, integrated solutions that typically require hundreds of people or more to develop and maintain.
Portfolio SAFe is for enterprises building solutions that require a modest number of Agile teams. It supports the development of multiple solutions, which have minimal dependencies on one another.
Large Solution SAFe
Large Solution SAFe is for enterprises that are building large and complex solutions, which do not require the constructs of the portfolio level.
Essential SAFe is most basic configuration of the framework and it provides the minimal elements necessary to succeed with SAFe.
Download the SAFe Overview
The SAFe Overview provides a simplified view of the Framework’s Seven Core Competencies of Business Agility and their twenty-one dimensions that enable business agility. The execution-related competencies are shown the left, while the competencies that support strategy development are on the right. The Lean-Agile Leadership competency which is the foundation is in the bottom middle. The customer is prominently featured at the center as the focal point for all the competencies. Measure and Grow at the top right is a reminder of the importance of periodic self-assessments to track the organization’s progress towards the principles and practices that enable business agility.
This overview is a useful tool for providing an initial orientation to SAFe, as well as an introduction to the business agility assessment, and for framing conversations with senior leaders.
Download the Implementation Roadmap
The SAFe Implementation Roadmap overviews a strategy and an ordered set of activities that have proven to be effective in successfully implementing SAFe.
Based on proven organizational change management strategies, the SAFe Implementation Roadmap overviews the steps, or ‘critical moves,’ an enterprise can take to implement SAFe in an orderly, reliable, and successful fashion.
Download SAFe Posters
The SAFe Principles poster lists ten immutable, underlying Lean and Agile principles upon which SAFe is based. These are the fundamental tenets, basic truths, and economic underpinnings that drive the roles and practices that make SAFe effective.
Agile development is the heart of SAFe. While there is no one perfect definition, the Agile Manifesto is the foundational document. It’s four values and twelve principles have withstood the test of time and continue to be the touchstone by which true agility can be judged and recognized.
SAFe Core Values
The four Core Values of alignment, transparency, respect for people, and relentless improvement represent the foundational beliefs that are key to SAFe’s effectiveness.
These tenets help guide the behaviors and actions of everyone participating in a SAFe portfolio. Those in positions of authority can help the rest of the organization embrace these ideals by exemplifying these values in their words and actions.
SAFe Flow Accelerators
Each flow property is subject to optimizations, and often many steps encounter unnecessary delays, bottlenecks, and other impediments to flow. Making value flow without interruptions can best be achieved by adopting the eight ‘flow accelerators’ described in this article. These powerful accelerators of value are relevant to all Framework levels, but the challenges differ for each.
