Why you should get a SAFe® Agilist Certificate?

Agile methods have been found to be applicable to a wide array of teams and organizations across the globe. However, with the rising complexity of team and project dynamics, the need for collaboration and scaling across teams and organizations has become prominent.

The Scaled Agile Framework has largely helped in bridging this gap and has facilitated collaboration across teams, complex systems, geographies and in any scenario where Agile alone has failed to create the needful impact.

SAFe®, essentially, is a complete methodology that enables complex organizations to carry out Agile transformation at an enterprise level. This fosters sustainable growth, fastest time-to-market, and a steep rise in team productivity.

Applying Lean/Agile principles and practices across all levels within an organization is the very first step towards an Agile transformation. The SAFe® framework synchronizes the alignment, collaboration, and delivery of multiple agile teams leading the way to enterprise success.

The Rising Demand for Leading SAFe® Certificate

The Leading SAFe® certificate has become the benchmark for Lean-Agile enterprises. It widens your scope in the industry both in terms of value and career opportunities. According to Forrester’s Q2 2015 Global Agile Software Application Development Online Survey-

“The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) is the most widely adopted enterprise Agile approach according to most survey data, with 33% using it”.

With more than 70% of US Fortune 100 companies actively employing SAFe®, it is clear that the demand for Leading SAFe®is on a constant rise. Earning Leading SAFe® 4.6 certifications from a globally renowned accreditation body i.e. Scaled Agile gives you a major lead over your peers and places you at the helm of Agile transformation in enterprises.


A Leading SAFe® certificate will not just merit a salary raise in your present organization but also offers several other benefits as listed below:

  1. Apply SAFe® in an enterprise context
  2. Deliver more value
  3. Improve communication and collaboration across all projects
  4. Introduce Agile not just to your IT delivery teams but the whole organization.
  1. Lead transformation in Scrum teams
  2. Become a top-earning scrum professional
  3. Grab more career opportunities
  4. Keep up with the swift-changing market trends

The average salary of a Certified SAFe® Agilist (SA) is $98k per annum. This is chiefly based on skills, experience, organization and a few more factors. As more and more organizations are defaulting to Agile, there is an exponential rise in the number of jobs for Agile professionals who can scale Lean and Agile practices at different levels. In the present industry, therefore, SAFe® certified professionals have a major competitive advantage.
