SAFe Foundations - presented by Mike Bonamassa

The Scaled Agile Framework is a proven knowledge base for implementing agile practices at enterprise scale. Its primary user interface is a “Big Picture” graphic which highlights the individual roles, teams, activities and artifacts necessary to scale agile from the team, to teams of teams, to the enterprise level.  The Big Picture describes three levels of scale: Team, Program and Portfolio. Each of these scales the essential agile elements of Value (requirements and backlogs), Teams (from development team through portfolio) and Timebox (iteration, PSI, budget cycle). The SAFe Foundations presentation is an overview of SAFe with a look into the three levels of scale and associated methods and ceremonies.
