Essential SAFe—the most basic configuration of the Framework—identifies the ten elements necessary to be assured of achieving results.

As part of the SAFe 4.5 release, Essential SAFe has been updated to integrate with the new features of the Framework. At the same time, new tools and resources were added to make it even more useful:

  • Essential SAFe is now officially part of the Framework! It’s one of the four configurations of SAFe.
  • The Essential SAFe graphic is fully integrated with what's new in 4.5, including features such as the Continuous Delivery Pipeline and the new foundation elements.
  • A downloadable overview explains the ten essential elements of SAFe, and why they are critical to a successful transformation.
  • A new self-assessment tool will help you identify the symptoms that exist in your enterprise.
