SAI Badge for SA

How does collaboration work with multiple agile teams?

How do I organize work by value streams across departments?

What changes with the introduction of SAFe?


We analyze and answer these questions together in our Leading SAFe® training. We derive how SAFe works and how a collaboration of multiple agile teams can work. We show how different roles can support and promote an agile organization. We do this in the form of a hands-on workshop.

The content of the "Leading SAFe®" workshop: Understanding and applying SAFe

In this training, you will learn how a Lean Agile organization works. You will apply the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) and its underlying principles from Lean, Systems Thinking, Agile Development, Product Development Flow and DevOps to understand how it works.

A training for anyone who wants to have an overview of how a scaled agile organization can work 

Leaders understand how they can support an agile organization. Coaches get an answer to what SAFe can and cannot do. Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and curious team members understand how to organize across team boundaries. Stakeholders understand how an agile organization works to deliver more value to them. Requirements, release, and test managers or project managers learn where these roles fit in an agile organization.

Varied mix of theory and practice

Like all our agile trainings, this one is interactive. Our focus is on experience-based learning: We impart knowledge through exercises, we discuss topics together on flipcharts, and we address practical cases. Of course, the official SAFe® slides are included. The wibas trainers are certified SAFe® Program Consultants (SPC) of Scaled Agile, Inc. with real-world experience. More details about this training can be found on the official SAFe® Website.

Three days to experience and reflect on scaled agility

Unlike other SAFe trainings, our Leading SAFe is three days long - remote and in presence. This gives us the space for exercises that bring scaled agility to life. On this basis, we can address the individual context of the participants and answer questions from practice.

Competencies that the training will provide you with

  • How to realize the benefits of an agile organization

  • How to establish team and technical agility and organize around value flow

  • How to align organizations around clear, common goals

  • How to successfully participate in key SAFe events, such as PI Planning.

  • How to adopt a customer-centric mindset 

Remote or presence – the choice is yours.

We offer our events in two formats: Presence at the wibas training center or remotely. Both forms are interactive live trainings with the usual wibas flair. Whether the training of your choice takes place in presence or remote, you can see next to the respective date. If you book the training as an in-house variant, you decide which format you prefer.
