If you’re serious about moving forward with SAFe in your organization, you’ll probably want to invest in some targeted SAFe training and coaching.  One more thing to strongly consider is that in the State of Agile survey of 3,900 people, the number one factor for successfully scaling agile was consistent process and practices. The second factor was implementing a common tool across your enterprise. The VersionOne Enterprise Agile Platform provides a single platform for implementing consistent process and practices.
