The Scaled Agile Framework (abbreviated as SAFe), is a knowledge-base of organization and workflow patterns, made freely available while being a registered trademark of Scaled Agile, Inc.
It is intended to guide enterprises in scaling lean and agile practices. Along with large-scale Scrum (LeSS), disciplined agile delivery (DAD), and Nexus, SAFe is one of a growing number of frameworks that seek to address the problems encountered when scaling beyond a single team.
SAFe promotes alignment, collaboration, and delivery across large numbers of agile teams. It was developed by and for practitioners, by leveraging three primary bodies of knowledge: agile software development lean product development, and systems thinking.
