The Scaled Agile Framework® (pronounced SAFe™) was created by Dean Leffingwell and is an interactive knowledge base for implementing Agile practices at enterprise scale. The “Big Picture” graphic created by Dean highlights the individual roles, teams, activities and artifacts necessary to scale Agile from the team to program to the enterprise level. Dean has elaborated on this scaled Agile adoption practice that often takes place in companies in his books Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements for Teams Programs and the Enterprise (2011) and Scaling Software Agility: Best Practices for Large Enterprises, (2007). He often discusses SAFe in his blog as well, which can be found at scalingsoftwareagilityblog.com.
