Another post about SAFe, LESS, Nexus…


If you didn’t notice, there is a little war out there about what Scallable Framework is the best… people saying SAFe isn’t Agile, other are. Oh Ya They are true SAFe is not Agile, I even follow a course to persuade myself. 

I wrote that note in response of a question I got from one of my customers yesterday. What Scallable framework I would recommend?

There are not one specific Framework who’s the best, some are 100% Scrum, like LESS, some are a hybrid between Agile and Lean like SAFe. Some are made for an organization Product Oriented, Some are made for large organization where the economy is an essential point and are separate from the operations. 

I m part of the Coach, who believe the best way to choose one particular Framework is to see it run on other companies, there are now many experience in the world to allow you to make that experience. Allowing our customers to ask their questions not to an Expert but to who already applied one of this framework and make their own judgment on how they will do their transformation. It is then our job as coach to help them in their transformation and not force them to go on a specific framework.

So my answer, is no, there is not a particular framework is the best, let understand your environment, then I will organize some visit of other similar companies who have made the transformation and I let you make your own judgement. I will stay near you and help you on your transformation.

    Agree, there is no best framework. I find more useful to use ideas/pratices from this framework or this other framework that suites the most with our organization.

    You end up with your “own” framework created from others but at the end it’s all what they are.

    For exemple, from SAFe we were really seduce by the idea of the PI planning. It helps us increase the communication and a bit the predictability even if we didn’t freeze the pre-planned sprints that comes out of the PI planning.

    We are mainly only using this item from SAFe because it helps us.
    I’ m currently studying LESS and perhaps we will adapt something from it.

    Remember : Plan Do Act Check …. in order to find what works for you with repects of the agile values and principles.
