Applied SAFe® Essential
With the raising success of the usage of the Scaled Agile Framework, a lot of new companies are starting their journey into SAFe. This license level represents the indispensable elements of SAFe® . If you implement these, you are on the right track for your first essential business benefits. After that, you can reason further about the rest of the practices, and constructs – whether at the Team, Program, Value Stream, or Portfolio level.
This license level comprises the SAFe Essential content and the PEDCO Knowledge Management process. It is pre-tailored and only available as a single instance on each Applied SAFe level in a 3-Level SAFe Configuration.
Applied SAFe Essential allows to start with a small and cost-effective package. This has the advantage that a company, or a department within a larger enterprise, can start with the minimum required for doing SAFe.
The benefit is, that you can gather first experiences with the application of SAFe and to harmonize teams towards a common approach. This allows you to easily migrate to other levels like Managed- or Enterprise at a later stage, including your own extensions.
