For over a decade, SAFe® has been the world’s most trusted system for business agility.
SAFe provides guidance on how businesses and employees can grow and respond to change. It started with the SAFe knowledge base and a training and certification program. Today, SAFe is in its fifth iteration and has been adopted by more than 20,000 enterprises across the globe. More than 1,000,000 practitioners have been trained through a role-based curriculum and use the SAFe Studio, supported by more than 500 world-class transformation and platform companies.
What is SAFe?
Gartner has found SAFe to be the #1 most considered and adopted framework for scaling agile.
One of our mantras at Scaled Agile is “Do All the Good You Can.” While this means different things to different people, we express this ethos as a company in several ways.
Scaled Agile donates 1% of its stock, 1% of its profit, and 1% of its time to humanitarian aid organizations around the world.
One day every year is dedicated to a company-wide volunteer event, teams dedicate one day to volunteer time off (VTO) four times a year, and individual employees each get an additional volunteer day to spend as they see fit.

We Value Every Voice
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is not a check box at Scaled Agile; it’s built into the very fabric of the SAFe methodology. Every person on a team is heard in the decision-making process, and any individual can pause a meeting or initiative to register a concern that will be heard by the entire group so that the entire group can resolve it.
This is especially true during the PI Planning event, where at the end each member of the Agile Release Train (ART) provides a vote of confidence for the plan. At this point any team member, regardless of location, job description or background, can raise a concern for the entire organization to address before committing to the plan.
