For Martin Seibert’s newest book – We Run on Agile – he had the opportunity to speak with Richard Wilson. With over 20 years of implementing Agile at scale, Richard co-founded the company with Mark Richards – a SAFe fellow who probably has launched between 30-50 trains over the last 10 years.

During the last sprint, our team worked diligently on new features and improvements for Agile Hive. Version 3.10 of the Jira SAFe solution is now available.

While SAFe is a great starting point to kick off your agile journey, it can be quite complicated to find your way through at the beginning. Anyone getting familiar with SAFe® processes for the first time might feel overwhelmed by the abundance of terms and components. In practice, all these elements should fit together and mesh to ensure an optimal process. Today we’re talking all about Essential SAFe and its benefits.
