Candid, Unscripted Conversation About SAFe, with Tom Mellor (CST)

I (Gene here) had the pleasure of having a candid, unscripted Conversation About SAFe, with Tom Mellor – one of the early days’ Certified Scrum Trainers (CST).  Tom openly shared some of his personal knowledge and views about SAFe, much of which was based on Tom’s many years in the industry experience and the privilege of personally knowing early agile adopters. We tried to keep our conversation as objective and as unbiased as possible.

The topics we discussed:

  • SAFe history
  • SAFe relevance to RUP
  • SAFe relevance to Scrum and agile
  • Overall market success/brilliance of SAFe
  • SAFe strategic alignment with tooling companies
  • SAFe, as a framework of choice by large consultancies (“Why?”)
  • Economics of SAFe adoption: client companies vs. SAFe
