Valpak Mentioned In Dean Leffingwell’s Scaled Agile Framework Blog
Valpak just caught the attention of Dean Leffingwell, Agile guru and father of SAFe (the Scaled Agile Framework that we have adopted). Over the weekend, he posted a blog reviewing the “Managed Agile Development: Making Agile Work for Your Business” book that contains our Agile transformation case study. He refers to our case study as “interesting”. This is kind of a big deal … to me, at least.
The SAFe website sees over 80,000 page views by 10,000 unique visitors per month. It will also be posted to Dean’s personal blog and appear on a new permanent Case Study page at the SAFe web site.
