“It is not enough that management commit themselves to quality and productivity, they must know what it is they must do. Such a responsibility cannot be delegated.” This quote from W. Edwards Deming accompanies me wherever I help companies to become more agile. Applied SAFe is an extraordinary tool doing exactly that: In a clear and precise way helping the people responsible to make a change to know what it is they must do.
Dr. Wolfgang Brandhuber, Accenture

Regulatory environments discouraged many companies from the manufacturing industries to start an agile transformation process. With Applied SAFe these companies can not only prove that the development of complex physical products using SAFe still meets all regulatory requirements but also have a very performant tool to support a sustainable SAFe implementation.
