Realizing the importance of offering our clients a scalable, full-service solution that will meet their business needs, our Agile Consulting team is pleased to partner with the following companies, all of whom have materially helped with the advancement of Agile adoption within the business community:

Scaled Agile

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. Scaled Agile Framework and SAFe are trademarks of Leffingwell, LLC We hope it will work for you, too.
