SAFe Updates

Hi Folks: On behalf of the entire Scaled Agile team and the SAFe Contributors, we are delighted to announce SAFe® 4.6 for Lean Enterprises. Why is this update important?

Increasingly these visitors come from our ever-growing group of countries where English is not the first language.
