SAFe 6.0 Work differently. Build the future.
Welcome to SAFe 6.0
“Work differently. Build the future.” That’s the new tagline from SAFe scaled agile. As a trusted SAFe partner, we obviously want to share what’s new in the SAFe framework and why they chose to go from 5.1 to SAFE 6.0.
Why SAFE is coming up with a 6.0 version
The unprecedented times of the pandemic only emphasized a reality that has been decades in the making. Organizations are overwhelmed by constant change. Between Customer expectations, supply chain complexities, and the impact of digital technology, the pace of change has never been faster, or the change itself has become more unpredictable. For thousands of global organizations and government agencies, SAFe has become integral for adapting to change, building resiliency, and thriving as a modern, digital business. Meeting the new realities of the marketplace requires SAFe to evolve continuously. With this new version, they will not lose sight of the core benefits but they also want to address new and emerging challenges.
What is in it for you?
“Work Differently. Build the Future,” represents the idea of innovating faster and successfully navigating any market disruption or opportunity. What does it mean to work differently? For starters, it’s increasingly clear—and now proven—that the entire organization needs to work with the same Lean-Agile mindset and practices. From marketing and finance to security and HR and everyone in between, this is how today’s most successful enterprises align strategy to execution and meet current and future customer expectations.
Integrating emerging technologies (such as AI, Big Data, and Cloud) into your Value Streams is a growing component of working differently. They are changing the nature of application development and will determine if your organization will succeed. Moreover, the pressure to accelerate the flow of value and deliver measurable business outcomes is unrelenting. The power of the Agile Team has never been more critical in achieving this.
