SAFe® DevOps: Optimizing Your Value Stream

Description

To compete in a disruptive global market, every organization needs to deliver valuable technology solutions at the speed of business. This requires a shared DevOps mindset among all the people needed to define, build, test, deploy, and release software-driven systems — not just the engineers operating a CI/CD pipeline.

The two-day, interactive SAFe® DevOps course helps people across technical, non-technical, and leadership roles work together to optimize their value stream from end to end. Attendees will learn what DevOps is, why it is important to every role, and design a continuous delivery pipeline that is tailored to their business. Attendees work in cross-functional teams to map their current state value stream from concept to cash, identify major bottlenecks to flow, and build an actionable implementation plan that will accelerate the benefits of DevOps in their organization.

Attendees will leave with the knowledge they need to support and enable a successful DevOps initiative at scale. The course also prepares attendees for the SAFe® 4 DevOps Practitioner (SDP) certification exam.

  • Explain how DevOps enables strategic business objectives
  • Apply a CALMR approach to DevOps to avoid automating broken processes

  • Incorporate continuous testing and continuous security into the delivery pipeline
  • Use value stream mapping to measure flow and identify bottlenecks in the end-to-end delivery process
  • Select DevOps skills and tools strategically for the fastest, most compelling results

Client's Feedback:

"Manish is an amazing SAFe instructor. His understanding of the subject and delivery with a diverse group of members was great. Manish was detailed, with real-life examples in delivering the course content while being patient with the many questions and examples of our own from various lines of business. I would highly recommend Manish for SAFe training. Thank you Manish."

"Manish is an excellent instructor. Having been a Senior Scrum Master for a while, I was very impressed with his depth of knowledge & experience. He was able to discuss both Theory & practice equally well that kept the class engaging. I'll surely be going back to take more courses with Manish in the future."

"Manish led a great 2-day intensive Leading SAFe 4.5 course which I attended recently. I have a lot of experience as an Agile coach and was a little weary of my time being wasted, especially on a weekend and on my coin. But thanks to Manish's in depth knowledge, his ability to adjust time spent on topics based on the audience, his impressive time management and his willingness for the class to get into some free-form discussions where we shared experiences of things that worked or didn't work, I was not only not dissapointed but really felt it was time well spent. I have extensive training experience myself and give Manish high marks for his skills and recommend him for any SAFe training (or any other training on any topic he is well versed in)."

"I took "SAFe Agilist (Leading SAFe for Leaders and Managers)" training with Manish. Taking training with Manish was an excellent experience. Manish is very knowledgeable and have a very strong presentation skills. He is very dedicated and committed to his students during and after the training until they get certified. Manish conducted the demos required in the curriculum, linking the explained topics and broadening our horizons. I highly recommend taking training with him."
