Hence, many product development teams use a mix of various agile processes and also add waterfall items to it. The case study takes through the experiences of using SAFe by distributed product development team and gaining same advantages as would any other small team. This case study would cover how adopting best practices of SAFe-ART helped in efficient deliveries with better quality.
