News SAFe Framework Updates

Hi Folks, 

One of the coolest things about our mission at Scaled Agile is that the challenge of ‘helping people build the world’s most important systems’ lays ahead of us and not behind. 

As we look into the future, we see our customer needs—and the complexity of the systems they build—growing, putting even greater demands on SAFe. To meet these demands, we are evolving the Framework team.

My teammates are some of the smartest and wisest people I know so I couldn’t be happier to announce these promotions: 

  • Andrew Sales will assume the title and responsibilities of Chief Methodologist alongside me. In addition, he will continue as Product Manager of the Framework.
  • Dr. Stephen Mayner will assume the title and responsibilities of Methodologist and Framework VP.
  • To provide additional thought leadership, emphasis, and critical connections to the community, partners, and enterprises, Harry Koehnemann, Marc Rix, Rebecca Davis, and Cheryl Crupi will assume the title and responsibilities of Methodologists.

Please join me in congratulating this extraordinary group of people. I can’t imagine a better team to guide the Framework into a fun and productive future. It is rewarding and fulfilling to continue to be a part of of it. 

Stay SAFe,
