SAFe Principles and Practices at DHS (Department of Homeland Security)

SAFe is built upon a strong set of principles and practices that form the foundation of a great agile scaling system for larger organizations. In this presentation, we will explore how some of these principles are being interpreted and practiced at one of the largest and most complex organizations in the world, The US Department of Homeland Security. The IT systems provided by DHS’s component agencies form the foundation of an enormously complex and important set of services that are vital to our national security. In order to meet the rapidly changing needs of an increasingly complex and dynamic world, DHS has been actively adopting SAFe principles and practices for a number of years and with great success.
