Implementing SAFe

Contact us for pricing

During the four day Implementing SAFe® course, you'll learn how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation by leveraging the practices and principles of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®).

Delivered by James Halprin, with years of experience driving agile adoptions leveraging SAFe, he'll share good practice and anti-patterns they have observed. You'll gain insights and practice how to effectively coach programs, launch Agile Release Trains, build a continuous delivery pipeline and empower a Lean Portfolio.

The first 2 days of this course will take you through the Leading SAFe® course to provide you with a solid understanding of the Scaled Agile Framework so you're able educate others. Days 3 and 4 focus exclusively on what it takes to successfully implement SAFe in the enterprise.

This course is suitable for all stakeholders in a Lean-Agile transformation using SAFe regardless of their experience. It goes without saying that the more people in the organisation who are trained to this level, the more successful the transformation. Most organisations benefit from having representatives from the executive team, the Program Management Office (PMO), and leaders and managers from both the Business and Technology. This ensures you have the internal capability to lead the adoption and train others.

We'll be upfront about it - although attending this class will give you the information you need to certify as a SAFe® 4 Program Consultant (SPC), you will need to study for the exam!
