Scaled Agile Framework Courses

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is a software development methodology knowledge base created by Dean Leffingwell for implementing agile practices at enterprise scale. Presented in a structured, interactive, publicly facing web format, its primary user interface is a “Agile Enterprise Big Picture” graphic which highlights the individual roles, teams, activities and artifacts necessary to scale agile from the team, to teams of teams, to the enterprise level. The following courses help to understand and apply SAFe, both at an enterprise and team level.

Leading SAFe

The SAFe Agilist certification program is for executives, managers and Agile change agents responsible for leading a Lean|Agile change initiative in a large software enterprise. It validates their knowledge in applying the Scaled Agile Framework, lean, and product development flow principles in an enterprise context so they can lead the adoption of the Scaled Agile Framework.

We address how to use the framework for enterprise level rollout of agile techniques, from portfolio to team. Attendees have the ability to take the SA exam as part of this course.

Scrum XP for Teams

The two-day SAFe ScrumXP for Teams course goes well beyond Scrum. It teaches Lean thinking tools, roles, processes, and the software engineering practices necessary to achieve the code quality you need to scale Scrum to your enterprise business context. The course is intended for new teams in an enterprise agile adoption program or can be used to re-baseline existing Scrum teams as required for scaling.
