What is SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework)?

As the world’s leading framework for scaling Agile across the enterprise, the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) empowers complex organizations to achieve the benefits of Lean-Agile software and systems development at scale.

Since 2011, hundreds of the world’s largest organizations have discovered its benefits: faster time-to-market, dramatic increases in productivity and quality, and more motivated and engaged employees.

How does SAFe do this? SAFe brings together thought leadership from Agile development, systems thinking, and Lean product development into a framework that provides a set of principles, values and guidance for Lean-Agile development.

The Scaled Agile Framework is a body of knowledge, graphically represented in the SAFe Big Picture, and is freely available at scaledagileframework.com. Each icon on the Big Picture links to a supporting article that provides detailed guidance on the concept being represented.
