Event description

Description

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is a framework built upon Agile and Lean practices that synchronizes alignment, collaboration, and delivery for multiple Agile teams. SAFe helps businesses address the significant challenges of developing and delivering enterprise-class systems in the shortest lead time.

In this two-day class, you will learn the principles and practices of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), how to successfully align agile work across your organization, and what it means to lead a Lean-Agile transformation at enterprise scale. You will also get practical advice on supporting agile teams and programs, empowering a Lean Portfolio, building a continuous delivery pipeline and DevOps culture, and coordinating large solutions. We merge theory and practice, giving you an opportunity to learn the principles, and apply them with hands-on class exercises that help solidify the learning. At the end of the class, you will qualify for the SAFe Leading Agile (SA) certification exam.

A SAFe Agilist (SA) leads the organization in adopting SAFe, Agile and Lean principles, guides executives in identification and prioritization of value streams, and supports teams in implementing SAFe practices, launching Agile Release Trains, and conducting PI Planning activities.
