Early this year, SAFe hinted — in one of the SAFe Partners’ calls, of which I’m a member of under my company, Applied Lean Agile — of a new SAFe version. Also, early this year, SAFe’s creator, Dean Leffingwell, also alluded to the fact that the 10th SAFe Principle should be:
SAFe Principle #10: Organize around value
And it — the 10th Principle — is now official with SAFe 5.0 — it came out early October during the SAFe Summit. SAFe 5.0’s General Availability is January 2020.
I’ll be blogging more about 5.0 from future partners’ calls… a thing that I cannot do earlier due to Non Disclosure Agreement between Applied Lean Agile and Scaled Agile inc.
