Applying a Lean-Agile mindset with SAFe

with SAFe® Agilist Certification

This is a two-day course when run in-person. Online we spread it to three or four days of four to six hours instructor-led sessions – since it is more demanding to learn online. Online we also add an additional short preparation meeting and end with a complimentary coaching session for an hour and a half.

During this course, attendees gain the knowledge necessary to lead a Lean-Agile enterprise by using the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe) and its underlying principles derived from Lean, systems thinking, Agile development, product development flow, and DevOps
