What is the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) methodology?

SAFe stands for the Scaled Agile Framework. It is a method based on Lean and Agile and is often used to develop large-scale products. Being able to move quickly, this method is gaining popularity.

Is SAFe applicable in the energy industry?

SAFe is certainly applicable in the energy industry. It is an organisational framework for larger organisations such as those present in the energy industry: where large groups (have to) work together on complex products and a changeable environment.

Consider the energy transition. Technology is constantly changing, supply and demand are in flux and products are complex. The structure (the framework) helps with this in the dynamic environment. It helps the utility industry innovate, have alignment, deliver reliability. SAFe can help you get FLOW in your organisation.
