Leading SAFe 4.6 (SA) with Certification
- 2 Days
Using Kanban, Scrum or other agile methods in large organizations is usually not limited to only one team. Methods need to be scaled. Extended approaches such as Scrum-of-Scrums are used to coordinate between agile teams in large projects. The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) supports an entire organization with this approach.
SAFe® offers an approved method to transform large organizations and optimize the added value of companies. Different organizational levels (team, program, and portfolio) are structured with synchronized agile processes. Processes are regularly integrally optimized (inspect and adapt) to accommodate all the perspectives and needs of the organization.
This course transfers the needed knowledge to successfully, implement and adjust the SAFe® Framework and establish the ideal Lean-Agile-culture.
