I attended an Agile Leadership Network (ALN-Raleigh/Durham) meeting a few weeks ago where Dean Leffingwell presented the Scaled Agile Framework. It was a solid meeting and quite thought provoking.

As with any "good" meeting, I went away thinking about what I heard, the contrasts against my own experience, and tried to sort through my reactions - both good & bad.

I've written some of them down in this article. I hope it comes off even handed, while still clearly communicating my concerns.

I guess the point is: Is SAFe...safe? I'm not quite sure yet ;-)

Thanks for listening,
