Today, companies know they must adapt quickly or die. They are increasingly seeking to adapt by using agile principles and practices—but many are still changing too slowly, and can't sustain change. Fortunately, a growing number of enterprises have found a far more effective solution: the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe).
SAFe changes the game by integrating Agile, Lean and product development flow thinking with a new operating model that successfully coordinate works at all levels: team, program, and portfolio. SAFe helps managers learn to become lean-thinking leaders, working with teams to continuously improve their systems, and create environments where everyone flourishes. In SAFe(R) 4.0 Distilled, two SAFe pioneers show software practitioners how to use achieve higher productivity, improve the quality of their software processes, and bridge the divide between executives, managers and practitioners—aligning everyone towards common goals and objectives. If you want to scale and sustain agile in the enterprise, SAFe can get you there. SAFe(R) 4.0 Distilled will help you launch it, quickly earn value from it, and grow its value with every new project.
