SAFe® also known as Scaled Agile Framework® was created by Dean Leffingwell and convinced us to be the most open framework to scale agile methods. In addition to that, the framework is open to open to go beyond software processes. The self-described mission on https://www.scaledagileframework.com/about/ is:
Our core belief is simple: Better software and systems make the world a better place. We help enterprises achieve this mission through the development and publication of the SAFe website, and through our world-class courseware, training, and certification programs. As you can see from the numerous Case Studies, many enterprises—large and small—are getting outstanding business benefits from applying SAFe. These typically include: 20 – 50% increase in productivity 25 – 75% improvements in quality 30 – 75% faster time-to-market 10 – 50% increase in employee engagement and job satisfaction As you can imagine, with these kinds of results, the practice of SAFe is spreading rapidly around the world. Seventy percent of Fortune 100 companies, and a growing number of the Global 2000 have certified SAFe professionals and consultants on-site, and over 450,000 practitioners have been trained to date.”
