Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) has become a leading methodology to scale Lean and Agile principles from individual teams to the program and portfolio levels. As enterprise teams adopt agile practices, some common problems they incur when developing large solutions are misaligned priorities, lack of cross functional team collaboration, and system architectures that do not scale or integrate efficiently. This is where SAFe comes in. SAFe provides direction on how to solve common business and information technology (IT) problems to ensure teams are aligned in terms of strategy, process, and solutions.
I love working at SEI; I’ve been here for almost 10 years now. Our company is about to celebrate its 25th anniversary, an amazing accomplishment for a boutique, locally focused, employee-owned consulting firm. Even more amazing, the core values which our founder built this great company on continue to fuel the fire that runs our business today. Contrary to the typical life cycle of culture being one of the first casualties of a growing company, the strengthening of our culture is integral to our growth!
