Course Detail: P_AGILESAFE - Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)

Since the publication of the Agile Manifesto in 2001, many organizations have realized significant gains in productivity, quality, and even job satisfaction at the team level. Learning how to do agile and be agile with few teams is one thing, but scaling agile in a medium to large organization is another effort entirely. As simple as the agile methodology wants to be, it can get complicated when you bring multiple teams into the mix.

Companies that are successful in bringing Agile to the enterprise are better equipped to compete, innovate, and grow because they're better able to adapt to the changing dynamics of their given marketplaces. This new competitive pressure has given rise to a number of different frameworks for scaling Agile, like SAFe, LeSS, Scrum @ Scale, DaD, etc. Each of these frameworks have success stories behind them, not to mention a few 'culture wars', an us versus them mentality of right and wrong ways of scaling.

By taking this class you will develop a skillset that is in demand worldwide. You will learn what it takes to empower your enterprise to succeed in a disruptive marketplace. During this course, you'll learn the principles and practices of scaling agile, how to execute and release value, and what it means to lead a Lean-Agile transformation at enterprise scale. You will gain an understanding of the Lean-Agile mindset and why it's so effective in today's adapt-or-die marketplace. You'll also get practical advice on supporting Agile teams and programs, building a continuous delivery pipeline and culture.
