In January the folks from Scaled Agile launched version 4.0 of the Scaled Agile Framework. The team at Context Matters have been quick to get up to speed on the new content and all our SPCTs and SPCs are certified to teach certified SAFe 4.0 courses.

As part of Em's participation in CukeUp Australia last month, the team at Cucumber invited her to join them in recording a podcast about Scaling Agile and how large organisations can make it work. You can tune to the discussion below: [embed]https://soundcloud.com/cucumber-podcast/how-can-you-scale-agile[/embed] .
While Em was at Agile 2015, she had the opportunity to catch up with fellow Aussie Craig Smith from InfoQ. They discussed how Em came to lead Australia's first Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) implementation and both her Agile 2015 sessions - The Magic Carpet Ride: A Business Perspective on DevOps and Thawing the Frozen Middle.

One of the topics I have been talking about at various conferences over the last 18 months, is scaling culture with agile tribes. This is a topic that resonates with people in both the Agile and DevOps communities. As part of my participation in the DevOps Enterprise Summit last month I was invited to share my thoughts on this topic on the TechBeacon blog:
At Agile Australia this year Context Matters was very proud to be able to sponsor a presentation by RMIT University's Catherine Haugh. Dean Leffingwell attend this session, as well as making time to drop by the RMIT office in Melbourne. Following this visit, Dean posted an update to the RMIT SAFe case study.
