This is pretty much been true about many scaled approaches to software. It seems like it’s either/or. But there are many ways to approach scaling that do not require heavy process control installations like SAFe.
While heavy marketing of scaled frameworks has become the norm, I’m still a firm believer that custom coaching and consulting to the specific unique culture that your company has is, and will always be, the answer.
Don’t blow up your organization with an out-of-the-box solution. #nobluescreenofdeath
