In the industry there are growing concerns about what practitioners call Dark Agile. A growing majority of leading experts advice against SAFe. What may seem like a reassuring solution could be instead a very expensive and time-consuming mistake.
Are you an entrepreneur, a director, a senior leader considering the adoption of SAFe or any other scaled agile frameworks?

Would you like to join us at the discussion table? Would you open up for us your motivation for SAFe adoption? What it is that attracted you toward consideration of this approach? What are your expectations for adopting Agile? And what is the particular context of your organization which we might be missing when looking from outside?

This session will be recorded and edited into a public podcast. Its purpose is to discuss the expectations: Why organizations are thinking SAFe as a solution for their agility? We will also look, what leading agile experts say about the framework and we will discuss alternative possibilities, that could be used instead.

The session will be moderated by: Luca Minudel and Michal Vallo
