This. I’m working with two clients at the moment that have fallen into the trap of adopting SaFE as a way of attempting to reconcile agile and waterfall and it’s a dog’s breakfast on most occasions. Things don’t line up well, or are shoehorned into matching timelines and delivery scopes, resulting in pressure to do more and faster all the time (which means you are actually pressured to do work of a lower quality).
