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.
On 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.
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.
This course is held over 2 consecutive days.
During this course, you will be working on:
Preparation material such as articles and videos, which you will need to read and watch before participating.
Information on how to prepare for the exam.
Information on the SAFe®Agilist certification.
The course will consist of a combination of theory and practical exercises in the SAFe framework.
On the course you will take an active role, participating in several practical exercises.
You will receive all presentations from the course, course material, posters and guidance for the final SAFe® certification.
The course Leading SAFe® is for anyone wanting an introduction to the Scaled Agile Framework, SAFe®.
Your role might be a change agent or leader and you have to implement or drive an agile transformation.
Perhaps you are working with agile programmes or portfolios as a result of your role as Scrum Master, Product Owner, Product Manager, or as project manager. Or maybe you are part of a PMO.
If you are a leader in a business unit or an IT-organisation, that works with innovation, then this course is relevant for you too.
When you participate in this course, you will not only gain personal skills, but also skills that your company or organisation can greatly benefit from.
