Hello, I’d like to personally invite you to register for the 2019 Global SAFe® Summit. This year, we’re holding the event at the Marriott Marquis in sunny San Diego, CA, from September 29 – October 4. It’s right on the marina, so when your brain gets saturated, you can step outside and let the Pacific ocean recharge your batteries. While we’re still working on the full agenda, you can expect interactive pre-conference training and post-conference.
Organizations just getting started with SAFe sometimes comment that the Framework can seem intimidating at first. Which is exactly why we created the SAFe Implementation Roadmap. But even with that guidance, it can be helpful for organizations to get an outside perspective when they embark on their SAFe journey. In this recent SD Times article, Targetprocess offers its take on getting started with SAFe — namely, eight steps to achieve a faster proof of concept of a SAFe implementation..

On behalf of the entire company, I’d like to extend my personal and cordial invitation to see you at the upcoming European SAFe® Summit. This year’s event is happening May 7 – 10 and is the place to connect with SAFe coaches, thought leaders, and change agents about topics relevant to the European community. The agenda will be loaded with the newest and most advanced SAFe technical content. Five technical tracks with over 20 sessions.
Hi folks, One of the best decisions we made as a company was to join the Pledge 1% campaign. If you haven’t heard, this is a growing global movement that encourages startups to contribute one percent of equity, product, profits or employees time (pick some or all!) into their communities. Since it was started, the movement has 8,500+ members in over 100 countries and have created over $1 billion in new philanthropy. In a recent.

“For Deutsche Bahn Digital Sales, SAFe is the framework for the strategic digitalization program … With it, we are delivering faster and more effectively on our objectives, which drives our ability to compete in the digital age.” —Matthias Opitz, Senior Program Manager, DB Vertrieb, Deutsch Bahn In SAFe we rely heavily on the metaphor of the train. Value is released through the Agile Release Train (ART). Features are the passengers riding the train. The train.
“SAFe brings so much more engagement, which has really been key for all parties. I wouldn’t want to do it any other way.” —Rajbir Bal, Program Manager, Access Control, JCI Our latest case study comes from Johnson Controls (JCI), a multinational conglomerate that produces automotive parts, electronics, and HVAC equipment. With 170,000 employees in more than 1,300 locations across six continents, they have experienced all the familiar aches and pains that come with having distributed.

We’ve seen substantial interest from some of our customers on this topic..
