Leading SAFe® 5 Certification Training

Select Option

Highlights

While Agile methods have been found to be readily applicable to small teams, most organizations today work across collaborative teams, complex systems and geographies. This requires Agile to work across the enterprise to bring in the benefits of faster delivery, better quality products and quicker response to customer queries. However, agile transformation across such a large scale is prone to failures due to lack of proper structure and processes, which results in agile implementations not yielding 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. Now in its latest release that is version 5, SAFe promises to bring in full business agility with significant advances in strategy, execution, and leadership competencies that will help individuals and organizations deliver innovative business solutions and supersede the competition.
