Tonight we hosted the Melbourne Agile and Scrum meetup at our office with the theme being reflections on the Agile Australia 2015 conference. The concept was open space which allowed everyone to self organise into groups and for the conversation to flow into what the people present wanted to get out of it.
The hottest topic of conversation was around SAFe or the Scaled Agile Framework, with a lot of people wanting to know more about it and how it works. It was an interesting conversation overall and towards the end I was ask by a couple of people if they think it’s worth adopting. My suggestion to them was that like all agile methodologies SAFe is a framework and you should adapt it to how it can work best for you.
