Abstract: Integrating SAFe into a PMO requires extensive reconfiguring of an organization and the Project Management Office. SAFe builds on Agile Scrum, XP, Lean, Design Thinking, and DevOps with its own knowledge base and framework. Implementing SAFe requires extensive use of organizational change management methodology. This session will provide an overview of SAFe and discuss implementing SAFe as part of the PMO both in terms of established SAFe implementation guidelines and the role of organizational change management theory in establishing a PMO.
