Hello folks,

We are pleased to announce the release of the SAFe® 4.6 white paper. In it, you’ll find an overview of SAFe, the Big Picture graphic, more detail about the Five Core Competencies of the Lean Enterprise, and the values, mindset, principles, and practices that guide teams to more effectively build solutions in a far leaner—and more Agile—fashion. You can download the white paper here.

Stay SAFe,

—Richard Knaster, SAFe Fellow, and the Framework team

    Is it possible to have more than one RTE or STE on a program that is 900k hours or more.

      Each ART in a Solution Train has one Release Train Engineer (RTE) and there is just one Solution Train Engineer for a particular Solution Train.

      What is the problem that you are trying to resolve?

    My name is Shervington Kerr I am a Senior BSA. Thank you for the much needed overview of SAFe 4.6. I will be attending aSAFe 4.6 SSM training and certification class in Toronto in March 2019. Your white pater gave me a good background prep for the course.
