Many organizations adopt agile organically, starting with a single team. But often, when they go to scale agile across multiple teams, departments, or business units, they struggle. The need for alignment, planning, cadence, roles, and communication, which may have seemed simple among a dozen team members, becomes challenging to implement across hundreds and even thousands of people.
To improve overall performance and not just the performance of a specific team or department, agile development by itself isn’t enough. The top companies in today’s digital world are those with agility built into their business operating system. They can react quickly, launch frequently, align their portfolios to customer and market changes, and prioritize the right work.
SAFe expands agile principles and practices beyond the team to help organizations achieve business agility: the ability to compete and thrive in the digital age by responding quickly to market changes and emerging opportunities with innovative solutions.
