Agility at scale topics appears in most of the conversation nowadays, either to solve multiple teams coordination issues working on the same initiative, in the name of business agility, or enterprise agility. There are numerous frameworks those claim to solve or provide solutions for agility at scale. Do they all retain core values even at scale? Let’s try exploring what do they offer.
Brief about all popular scaling frameworks
Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe): SAFe was created by Dean Leffingwell and has been in existence since 2011. It has gone through 5 major revisions besides multiple minor revisions so far. The current version is SAFe 5.1, which got revised in February 2021. It has four constructs — Essential SAFe, Large Solution SAFe, Portfolio SAFe, and Full SAFe. It would be best if you had either portfolio or full SAFe to achieve business agility through SAFe. The SAFe structure grows when you move from one level to another by adding new roles and responsibilities.
