SAFe transformation efforts lose leadership support over time because the army of consultants they hired focus on development methodologies, often prescribing the same advice to every business.
Executives, who are the experts in their unique business, care about sustainable profit and are often indifferent to development methodologies.
Sustainable SAFe focuses on the unique relationship between your value streams, your solutions, and profit.
A Profit Stream is a value stream designed to create a sustainable business. Profit Streams quantify the economic value of the solutions they create and ensure the revenue generated from these solutions exceed the costs required to serve customers. Not just once, but throughout the entire solution lifecycle.Talk to a SAFe Fellow

Every organization makes an ongoing investment in its people and their processes. Implementing SAFe is no different: It is an investment in adopting a new way of working that has the potential to create extraordinary value.
Getting the best return on your investment requires you to get clear about the problems you intend to solve, understand your goals, develop a strategy and roadmap for your implementation, and then engage at a pace that ensures your people are fully absorbing the new way of working.
Applied Frameworks’ unique approach to helping you adopt SAFe is grounded in the Lean-Agile principles of delivering a continuous flow of value. With Applied Frameworks, you won’t be waiting a year for your SAFe implementation to deliver value. We will help you find the early wins while creating the foundation to keep winning.Talk to a Safe Fellow

The comprehensive sophistication of SAFe can feel daunting. And that’s no surprise! SAFe is designed to enable organizations to successfully tackle the world’s most challenging problems. It has to be comprehensive. It must be sophisticated.
To leverage a framework as sophisticated as SAFe, it is helpful to have a team of guides, coaches, and fellow business leaders that can coach and mentor every person in your organization, from individual members of Agile teams to executives grappling with multi-billion dollar (or Euro) investment decisions.
Applied Frameworks’ SAFe practice consists of consultants who have the deep knowledge and practical experience required to leverage SAFe for all of its gooey delicious Lean-Agile goodness.
Two of our Applied Frameworks team members, Luke Hohmann and Phil Gardiner, have earned the prestigious distinction of SAFe Fellow.

They’re shaping the evolution of SAFe in collaboration with customers and Scaled Agile.
