The Value of SAFe 4.0

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) 4.0 was just released in January, expanding upon SAFe 3.0’s existing capabilities to address large-scale Agile transformation. Much has changed but SolutionsIQ can help make sense of it and help you connect the dots between SAFe and scaling Agility across your enterprise.

In addition to the three levels of the previous SAFe versions (Team, Program and Portfolio), SAFe 4.0 has an optional Value Stream level. Four-level SAFe is for large solutions including hundreds of practitioners per value stream.
