Dean has elaborated on this scaled Agile adoption practice that often takes place in companies in his books Agile Software Requirements: Lean Requirements for Teams Programs and the Enterprise (2011) and Scaling Software Agility: Best Practices for Large Enterprises, (2007). He often discusses SAFe in his blog as well, which can be found at scalingsoftwareagilityblog.com.
