Description

Why AgileSavant?

  • We don't mind smaller class sizes, so we rarely cancel on you. Smaller classes also give us the opportunity to focus on your actual business context -- meaning we spend more time speaking to the realities of your business situation.

  • We've trained several hundred professionals in SAFe, and our students have a 99% pass rate on their first exam attempt. OUTSTANDING!

  • All of our courses are catered by Jason's Deli for breakfast and lunch. We order breakfast based on the dietary instructions that you share during your registration process with us (via this site), and provide you menus for lunch, which will be delivered to our classroom for your convenience.

  • Just listen to our course attendees. A large majority of our students return for another class and, when they do, they benefit from a 10% discount on each additional course offering.

  • Finally, we are GREAT at this and you will have a GREAT experience with us! We offer class experiences that very few training providers take the trouble to match.

Summary

During this two-day course, attendees 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. They will also learn and practice the skills for supporting and executing PI Planning events, and coordinating multiple Agile Release Trains (ARTs).

Attendees will gain 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. They’ll also learn 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. They will develop a skillset that’s in demand worldwide—and empower their enterprises to succeed in a disruptive marketplace—when they become a SAFe® 4 Agilist (SA).
