Same ‘Sandwich’ — when seen from various levels — got different contexts… and points of interest… and what’s talked about is different vis-a-vis other levels … but, it is about the same ‘sandwich’!!!

The same is true in SAFe… Portfolio Level (Wide shot), ART Level (mid shot), Team Level (close-up shot) are the various levels wherein a single Big , Hairy, and Audacious Idea (BHAI) could be seen in different contexts … still about the same BHAI.
Portfolio Level (Wide) same BHAI … but what’s talked about, among other things, are: Governance , Portfolio Execution, and ‘Strategic Investment and Funding’!
ART Level (Part of Essential Level) (Wide) — same BHAI … but what’s talked about here is at a lower level (than the Portfolio level). Features of the BHAI.
Team Level (Part of Essential Level) (Close-up) — same BHAI … but what’s talked about here is at the lower lever (than the ART level). The details of things. Stories of the Feature of the BHAI.
