On the other hand, there is reassuring, for example, the presentation of Henrik Kniberg “Is SAFe evil? Scaled Agile Framework is controversial: – At first glance SAFe looks a bit like a big scary heavy-weight top-down RUP zombie. But. what about in real life? This talk is based on our experience doing this at Lego with about 15-20 teams for 9 months and counting. We’ll tell you our story so far, and reflect on the evilness or non-evilness of SAFe .
