I am starting to think about the professional development and certifications I might want to complete in 2023. I had considered “The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) is the leading system for scaling agile, trusted by thousands of enterprises.” But every time I read about it or look at the diagram for it I wonder how would one remember all of that. So today I logged into LinkedIn and when there was post that stated this,
SAFe is sold as a silver bullet by con men to naive executives that are led to believe that it will help them be agile. It will not.
There is a reason that not a single successful commercial software organisation uses SAFe.Source: Martin Hinshelwood. https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6992048264279683072/, 11/2/2022
Needless to say, it peaked my interest. I am going to read his information. He has a whole website dedicated to the thesis that SAFe is a delusion – https://safedelusion.com.
If you would like more information on SAFe please see this website – https://scaledagile.com.
