Implementing SAFe® (SPC)

Is your organization starting a Lean Agile transformation based on the Scaled Agile Framework SAFe® 5.0? As a potential SAFe® Program Consultant (SPC 5.0), you intend to start and support the future Agile Release Train's (ART's) transformation?

We have the right training for you!

Due to the current situation, especially the contact-reducing measures, we offer our trainings as virtual live trainings. Read more here.

During this four-day course, attendees will learn how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation by leveraging the practices and principles of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), as well as the five core competencies of the Lean Enterprise. Attendees will also gain insights and practice how to coach programs, launch Agile Release Trains, build a Continuous Delivery Pipeline with DevOps culture, and a Lean Portfolio. The first two days of the course—Leading SAFe®—will provide them with the basis to teach SAFe to leaders. The final two days focus exclusively on what it takes to successfully implement SAFe in the enterprise.

Becoming a Certified SAFe® 5 Program Consultant (SPC), and becoming a change agent, will enable attendees to coach and guide the enterprise to succeed in a disruptive marketplace and empower them to implement a Lean-Agile SAFe transformation.
