Scrum@Scale and Scaled agile framework (safe) Program

Updated: Jul 20

Advocates of the Programs:


1. Create a reference model by Self-Organizing Agile Teams

2. Requires leadership support by building guiding collation

3. Do not scale crappy code- building quality is the most

4. Dual Operating System- Organize around the flow of value

5. Relentlessly improve by Transparency, Inspection, and Adaptation

6. Build based on your organizational context- as there exists no fixed prescription
