The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is one of a few ways to adopt Agile practices at scale. There is a plethora of information available on-line and SAFe training in every city, but what is it really like in practice? This talk will review the framework with real examples of how companies have chosen to execute SAFe. You will learn what benefits were realized as well as what challenges arose.
