We’re pleased to announce the latest version of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) has been released –SAFe 4.0 for Lean Software and Systems Engineering!
We are SAFe Silver Partners. This, of course, means that we’re big proponents of the framework (when implemented properly), and as such, we offer SAFe-related training courses, services and consulting.
We also have three certified SAFe Program Consultants (SPCs) in our company: Mike Harris, Tom Cagley and Tony Timbol – all of whom are available to offer SAFe guidance and run SAFe courses. We’re excited to share that they are all now officially certified in SAFe 3.0 and SAFe 4.0, having passed the official exam that covers the latest updates to the framework.
What are those updates? Well, any framework worth its salt is going to appropriately evolve over time based on industry feedback – and SAFe is no exception. Version 4.0 offers a single, more scalable framework that includes new content and guidance to help organizations better organize around value delivery and improve the coordination of value streams and systems.
- SAFe now supports both software and systems development.
- Enterprise Kanban systems manage the flow of work across all levels.
- The Big Picture is simpler and lighter weight.
We won’t get into all the details here. You can read more about the update on the SAFe website or join Tony Timbol for a webinar on January 21 to review the changes from 3.0 to 4.0. If you have any questions, you can always contact us for more information – we’re always happy to help!
