Survey 2022: Would you recommend SAFe®?

TL; DR: Survey: Would you recommend SAFe®?

SAFe® has always been a controversial topic within the agile community. Therefore, back in 2017, I ran a survey on the Net Promoter Score® of the Scaled Agile Framework SAFe®. The result back then was -52. Four and a half years later, I believe it is time to rerun the poll: SAFe® has been through several iterations, and many more agile practitioners have experienced working with it. Moreover, the question still is: Would you recommend SAFe ®?

If you can spare five minutes of your time, please join the community effort and participate in the 2022 SAFe® survey.

🗳 Update: Join the poll and its lively discussion on LinkedIn.

2022 Resilience Tech Report for SXSW Preview

Howdy! Back in 2015, I started sharing everything I’d recently learned into a kind of “music album” of knowledge to drop at SXSW. It’s a side project that hasn’t left my side, thus far — I guess it saves me time so I don’t have to write another book :+). In a nutshell, the science of resilience turns out to be as complex as the science of design. This is my first crack at decoding it.
