This one was an interesting session! Scaled AGILE always fascinates me but I really never got to understand SAFe in its truest sense primarily as I work for a comparatively small company and maybe I never put it genuine efforts to do so!
The presenter made a point that Scaled AGILE is much more than just SAFe.
He referred to few articles/posts worth reading:
If you read all of these, you will get a fair enough picture of what SAFe is not !
He talked about various other AGILE scaling approaches ; basic idea and people behind each of them, roles , books, diagrams and other resources.
— SAFe : Scaled Agile Framework
— DAD: Disciplined Agile Delivery
— EBMgt : Evidence Based Management
— ETF: Enterprise Transition Framework
— LeSS : Large Scale SCRUM
— SA@S: Scaling Agile at Spotify (A interesting one!!)
— ScALeD: Scaled Lean Development
— PDFbyR : Product Development Flow by Reinertsen
Lastly these were compared in terms of Blueprint v/s Principles, Commercialization, Scaling,
To be honest, the presentation slides were one of the best I have seen!! Lot of information in such a compact format and easily readable. I got a lot to read from this session 🙂
