Lyssa Adkins, the “Agile Coaches’ Coach” has written a fantastic article sharing her feelings and perspective on SAFe. (Thanks to Gerry Kirk for bringing this article to my attention!)
As you know, dear readers, my colleague Travis and I are at SAFe Program Consultant training with Dean Leffingwell this week in London, UK. I have lots of notes even after my first day and I will write one or two articles this week giving you my impressions and highlights. I have already reviewed all the course materials including appendices, ahead of the actual training. I can say this so far: SAFe has a lot of great things in it, and overall, I think it is a fantastic example of a Pragmatic approach to Enterprise Agile Adoption. I will definitely be writing more on this idea of Ad Hoc, Pragmatic and Transformative approaches.
