Mark Richards has been involved with the SAFe Framework since 2012 when he coached Australia’s first Scaled Agile implementation at Telstra. In 2013 he made major contributions to the framework which led him to being named the world’s first SAFe Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT) outside of Scaled Agile Inc. and he is one of only 13 SAFe Fellows in the world. Dean Leffingwell, creator of SAFe and Chief Methodologist explains “If we are in a challenging situation—whether puzzling over the next generation framework or struggling to optimise a SAFe implementation—the Fellows are the folks we turn to.”
PM-Partners are proud to partner with Agile Rising and co-facilitate the delivery of our first Implementing SAFe course.
