Certification Course NOW $1,075.50 ex. GST


Leading SAFe Overview

During this two-day course, you will gain the knowledge necessary to lead a Lean-Agile enterprise by leveraging the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), and its underlying principles derived from Lean, systems thinking, Agile development, product development flow, and DevOps. This course explores the five competencies needed to become a Lean Enterprise, whilst allowing participants to practice the skills required for supporting and executing Program Increment (PI) Planning events and coordinating multiple Agile Release Trains (ARTs).

This course will provide you with an understanding of the Lean-Agile mindset, why it’s so effective in today’s adapt-or-die marketplace, and what it means to lead a Lean-Agile transformation. It will also show you how to build and support Agile teams and programs, empower a Lean Portfolio, build a Continuous Delivery Pipeline and DevOps culture, and coordinate large solutions. You will develop a skillset that is in demand worldwide—and empower your enterprise to succeed in a disruptive marketplace—when you become a SAFe® Agilist (SA).
