How to work effectively with SAFe®

In a world with rapid and constant change, agile principles are gaining importance in an increasing number of businesses. SAFe® or Scaled Agile Framework is an acknowledged framework for lean-agile product development in organisations, where several teams work from a shared cadence.

In the course Leading SAFe® you learn how to lead agile transformations in your organisation. You will get a thorough introduction to the SAFe® framework, which prepares you to work effectively with agile scaling.

With a starting point in the SAFe® framework, you will learn how to scale the agile practice from the team to the programme and across the entire organisation. With this, you will be able to deliver quicker and better results.

 

What is Scrum, and what is the difference between Scrum and SAFe®?

In short, agile is a way of working – a mindset – whereas Scrum is a framework that builds on agile principles and values. SAFe scales that frame and ensures that we can use Scrum on an enterprise level.

Programme structure and content

This course is held over 2 consecutive days.

During this course, you will be working on:

How lean-agile development differs from more traditional project methods

How SAFe provides a shared framework for the entire organisation. This extends from portfolio management over programme management to execution with several agile teams

How to organise value streams (all activities and steps that are a part of the solution for the customer) in “Agile Release Trains” also called ART – and deliver value, that will simultaneously ensure satisfied customers

How several teams can work together in an Agile Release Train (ART) to solve a shared and transverse task – with a focus on planning and flow in numerous levels

How you can become the driving force in working agile in larger and scaled programmes
