-One final word of warning; do not underestimate the importance of maintaining a cadence, a heartbeat, for you organization. I've seen some organizations say "if we don't have a regular quarterly planning session, then we can just do everything without a schedule.

This is true no matter whether we have implemented SAFe or any other framework. As said, these are all great conversations to have.
