With over 70% of U.S. Fortune 100 enterprises adopting SAFe practices, and nearly 60,000 individuals trained and certified, the demand for an event dedicated to SAFe has been enormous.
Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) August 11, 2016
Scaled Agile, Inc., provider of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), today announced that registration has opened for the 2016 SAFe Summit, which will take place October 25–28 in Denver, Colorado. The four-day Summit is being hosted by Scaled Agile, and will be the largest gathering of its kind to focus exclusively on SAFe and its community of practice. The inaugural event is focusing on empowering the SAFe community to help enterprises become more Agile in the marketplace and more competitive in their industry.
“With over 70% of U.S. Fortune 100 enterprises adopting SAFe practices, and nearly 60,000 individuals trained and certified, the demand for an event dedicated to SAFe has been enormous,” said Dean Leffingwell, creator of SAFe and Chief Methodologist. “We’re excited to meet that demand with this premier event where the community can learn, connect, and share ways to improve outcomes for systems and software-dependent enterprises across all industries."
“The SAFe Summit is an outgrowth of the overwhelming success we had with last year’s Scaled Agile Partner Summit,” said Francis Kelly, VP of Enterprise Sales and Partner Development. “This year we’re expanding our horizons to provide a ‘big tent’ event for everyone engaged with SAFe—partners, practitioners, instructors, consultants, and enterprise business leaders. We’re also inviting Partners to exhibit, making this the first event of its kind where SAFe service, training, and tooling vendors can showcase their solutions to a SAFe-minded audience.”
