Overview

The goal of this course is to prepare internal change agents and external consultants to lead an enterprise agile transformation.

  • Implement the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe)
  • Train managers and executives in Leading SAFe and act as a SAFe Agilist (SA) certifying agent
  • Train teams in SAFe ScrumXP for Teams and act as a SAFe Practioner (SP) certifying agent

The first two days of this class is an intensive version of Leading SAFe. The goal is to prepare certified SAFe Program Consultants (SPCs) to teach the course and act as a certifying agent for SAFe Agilists (SAs). You will also gain the knowledge necessary to lead an enterprise agile transformation by leveraging the Scaled Agile Framework and its underlying principles of lean thinking and product development flow. You will leave with an understanding of how the principles and practices of the framework support Agile Teams, Agile Programs, Agile Program Portfolio Management and Agile Architecture.

In the second two days, you will gain the knowledge needed to identify, plan, and implement SAFe programs with Agile Release Trains. Further, you’ll have the briefings, artifacts and templates you need to identify the value streams, prepare the organization, launch agile programs, plan and execute the major events, and implement effective processes and measures for continuous program improvement.
