Title: Overview of Scaled Agile Framework - SAFe

Speaker: Samir Penkar

Companies are striving to become more agile, trying to shed the bureaucratic governance models and structures in an effort to increase speed and flexibility. Agile has proven to be an effective methodology for software development at a team level. But how do you scale agile principles and practices across the enterprise? In this webinar we will introduce the Scaled Agile Framework -
SAFe. We will also look at some case studies of companies who have successfully applied SAFe. In the pursuit of agility, SAFe offers a framework that you can customize for your enterprise.
