Organizational Spotlight: Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®)

As a framework, SAFe provides specific guidance at the team, program, and portfolio level. Scalable and configurable, it synchronizes alignment, collaboration, and delivery for multiple teams, allowing B3 Group to develop and deliver software systems to its customers in the shortest lead time.
