Presentation: Is SAFe evil?

Track: Game changing methods and practices / Time: Monday 10:20 - 11:10 / Location: Amalienborg

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. And we might even tell you what the "e" in SAFe stands for.
