Try Googling that question and you’ll find some strong opinions and clever commentaries. The blogosphere is just filled with opinions on the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®), and whether it’s really Agile, or whether it is taking Agile in a bad direction. When building extremely large complex systems involving life critical applications, this becomes much more than an academic argument. When evaluating approaches for applying Agile values and principles in practice, it’s critical to evaluate whether the Agile “solution” fits the problem space. This lightening talk will describe why the Scaled Agile Framework is being adopted by programs at Lockheed Martin and how the framework enables agility and satisfaction of Agile values and principles within our company, and more broadly the defense and government contracting domain.
