SAFe Delivers Better Outcomes
SAFe values business and practitioner outcomes over ideology, theory, framework, practice, or method. SAFe helps enterprises substantially increase productivity (30-50%), quality (30-50%), time to market (3-4 times faster), and employee engagement as exhibited by documented and reference-able case studies. Many enterprises are getting similar results, but use SAFe as a competitive advantage and therefore do not publish this data. Additional case studies are in process.
