Abstract

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) has been adopted by a large number of organizations to scale agile to large enterprises that develop software. At the moment, SAFe seems to be the most predominant agile scaling framework. Despite the current popularity of SAFe in the software intensive industry, there exists surprisingly little research on the adoption and usage of SAFe. To study what is known about SAFe with respect to benefits and challenges of its usage, we conducted a multivocal literature review. The preliminary version of the results are presented in this poster version of paper. We identified 48 unique adoption cases in 46 organizations from both peer reviewed and non peer reviewed (grey literature) sources.
