Description

Regd. Education Provider

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.
