No matter the size of your organization or your industry, the end goal of any company is to deliver the highest quality product to customers in a way that fosters the innovation and creativity of people working in teams. This school of thought has led to the development of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), a scalable Agile solution for enterprise-level organizations.
Operating under Agile principles, SAFe aligns all levels of the enterprise – from agile teams to executives – for accelerated value delivery. By leveraging short feedback cycles, transparency, visibility, and strategic alignment, innovation is unleashed to ensure that the best products and services are delivered to customers.

Built-in Quality and Continuous Delivery
All teams commit to and ensure sound code quality, as “one bad apple can spoil the bunch.”
Visibility and Transparency
No one person or team is more important than another, and knowledge orders must be broken down to succeed.
