    Agile software development promotes self-organizing teams, close collaboration with client and team members, short iterative development cycles, response to changing requirements and continuous feedback. Originally agile methods were developed for small teams. As large organisations had a need for agile software development methods supporting several teams and collaboration between them, scaled agile development methods were developed. They promise increased productivity and quality, higher customer engagement and alignment between all levels of the enterprise. This thesis focuses on the software developers perceptions on team performance in Scaled Agile environment. More specifically this thesis studies how team performance is perceived to be impacted in organization that has adopted Scaled Agile Framework (SAFE). The study was designed to acquire descriptive knowledge through empirical studies. This thesis is based on an investigation of a single case company based in Finland. The data for analysis was collected from semi-structured interviews with 5 experienced developers. The findings show that several factors impact software developers team performance experience. By investigating the point of view of practitioners, we observed that team performance is a concept that evolves over time and is prone to be influenced by surrounding environment. This understanding can be used to adjust software development method related practices and organizational factors. This study provides pieces of advice on what kind of practices support or hamper team performance and how to improve them.
