White Paper: SAFe® 4.0 Introduction

Overview of the Scaled Agile Framework® for Lean Software and Systems Engineering

This white paper distills the essence of SAFe from hundreds of website pages to just twenty-five, and provides a high level overview of the Framework, including its values, principles, practices, and strategy for implementation. It should prove to be helpful in several ways:

  • Educate leaders, managers, and executives about how to apply SAFe for enterprise-class Lean-Agile software and systems development
  • Prepare students in the basics of SAFe prior to taking a course (e.g. Implementing SAFe 4.0 with SPC4 certification, Leading SAFe 4.0, etc.)
  • Help people understand SAFe 4.0 in greater detail, especially those who haven’t taken a 4.0 SAFe class


PowerPoint: SAFe® 4.0 in 8 Pictures

SAFe® Foundations has been the cornerstone downloadable PowerPoint presentation for you to introduce the Scaled Agile Framework in your enterprise. Now there is a new, lightweight tool for introducing: (1) Levels, (2) People, (3) Backlogs, (4) Cadence, (5) Code Quality, (6) Relentless Improvement, (7) Economic Prioritization, and (8) the full Big Picture.

There are no bullets: only 8 pictures and 16 words. The graphical nature allows you to tailor your talk to any audience. Behind it are robust speaker notes to get you started quickly. From there, you can continue building your knowledge with other content from this site.

PowerPoint: What’s New in SAFe® 4.0

The 39-slide deck takes approximately 45-minutes to present, and is ready to go with robust speaker notes, Implementing SAFe 1-2-3, case study results, and next steps.
