Main Event Topic: Nothing beats an Agile Team, except a Team of Agile Teams… SAFe - Scaled Agile Framework!

SAFe is a freely revealed knowledge base of integrated, proven patterns for enterprise Lean-Agile development. It simulates building a portfolio that’s organized around value and operates on cross-functional Agile Release Trains that consist cross-functional teams that can execute and deliver working solutions in a timebox. With a sufficient staff of Lean-Agile change agents onsite, and working with your partners, you’ll have the ability to train the executives and leaders and managers – the people responsible for managing the people who deliver value. They’ll then be in a position to support the launch of the Agile Release Trains. And one train at a time, you’ll build that Agile portfolio!
