We have proof that “#SAFe® is not better than classic #ProjectManagement!”

Since a few years, we have been more and more called by companies that have to admit that SAFe® made it worse. No gain in throughput or shortening the lead time.
Something‘s wrong!

Now we have the first data of one of these SAFe® implementations. Something around 200 developers, working for 1.5 years with SAFe®. And they did a very well SAFe® implementation – no doubt about this.

We were allowed to measure the typical symptoms of „project organizations.“
We have, since 2016, a scientifically proven questionnaire to assess the severity of negative project management symptoms. Yes, your read right. We assess an #agile organization with project measures. That allows us to compare the performance of SAFe® (on the left) with over 400 project organizations (on the right).

Comparison and results

At least this SAFe® organization looks very much like* the average classic project organization – no real improvement!

Is it really like this, that SAFe® is more or less like classic projects - just different words?

Now we need more Data!
We offer this analysis to all organizations that do SAFe® for more than 1.5 years – for free.

* There is a slight difference – the “thin resource spreading” improved. This company does the PIP very strictly – so the Work-in-Progress is around 100% - so the thin resource spreading went down … but good companies come down to a 3 or a 4 on this scale! So good but not perfect.
