10 Questions with Dean Leffingwell, Creator of SAFe - Part III

Darren Wilmshurst and Radtac had the great chance to run a Q&A session with Dean Leffingwell, creator of the Scaled Agile Framework. Dean’s answers on SAFe updates, implementation advice, challenges, and more are captured in a series of blog posts and short videos.

In the first video of the series, Deans answers questions on the future of the Scaled Agile Framework, and in the second episode Dean talks about the major impediments to implementing SAFe and the Leadership Challenge.

This is the third part of the series - view the first part here and the second part here.


In this third episode of our ‘10 Questions with Dean Leffingwell’ series, I’m talking to Dean about the role of Projects and Project Managers within the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®).

We then go on to explore the alignment with the Scrum Guide in a scaling environment, and what the Scrum changes are within SAFe v4.5.

What if your teams are running Kanban? Find out from Dean how that fits not only within SAFe, but also inside a synchronous 2-week iteration.

If you are interested in finding out more about being a ScrumMaster in a SAFe environment, then consider attending either the SAFe ScrumMaster course or the SAFe Advanced ScrumMaster course. Check out our latest public scheduled classes:
