While Agile methods have been found to be readily applicable to small teams, most organizations today work across collaborative teams, complex systems and geographies. In such a scenario, agile implementations often fail to have the expected impact. The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) is a complete methodology for large-scale Agile project teams to carry out an Agile transformation seamlessly. Applying Lean/Agile principles and practices across all levels within an enterprise is the first step toward such a change. The SAFe® framework effortlessly synchronizes the alignment, collaboration, and delivery of multiple agile teams leading the way to enterprise success.
Our 2-day Leading SAFe® training class gives you the knowledge required to become a Certified SAFe® Agilist, and to lead agile transformation within your enterprise using the Scaled Agile Framework and its underlying principles of flexibility, lean thinking and product development flow.
This course is based on version 4.5 of SAFe®.

I would have given this as 5 star if the venue could be little better in terms of proper room and equipment selection.Attended workshop in November 2017
In a single line I would say, Leading SAFe sessions were very well arranged with very knowledgeable faculty who is highly experienced in Agile. Great experience overall.Attended workshop in December 2017
Training arrangement was excellent by Knwoledgehut. Hotel, trainer and arrangements are very well done. I was able to pass the exam within very short time period post the training. Highly recommended for anyone taking training for Leading SAFe 4.5 Certification.Attended workshop in December 2017

While it is easy to apply Lean/Agile principles at the team or department level, replicating these benefits at the enterprise level is often challenging due to the scale of the change. Organizations therefore rely on the Scale Agile Framework (SAFe®) that helps seamlessly carry out large-scale, multi-team transformations. SAFe® Agilists are in much demand for their expertise in leading this change though carefully thought of program releases and identifying roles and structures required to scale Agile to the program level.

PDUs and SEUs are credits awarded by the Project Management Institute and the Scrum Alliance respectively.
