SAFe Resources SAFe Updates

Hi Folks, Some of you already know that one of my technical pursuits over the last few years has been to better understand and describe the way in which enterprises can apply Agile methods to building big and important systems, specifically “high assurance” systems that have an unacceptably high social or economic cost of failure.
