Scrum is the most commonly used agile approach in software development. The reason for this is that it can be understood quickly and can deliver results in a relatively short space of time. Many organizations have already opted for the Scrum approach; however, they see problems arising between the agile teams and the rest of the organization that still works in a traditional way. The challenge is to get the various teams to work together productively in order to create a complete chain that is focused on adding value. SAFe® (Scaled Agile Framework) was set up to achieve this.
The SAFe 4.0 framework is built on principles taken from Lean and Agile, and it focuses on medium-sized to large enterprises. In addition to the team, program and portfolio levels, particular attention is paid to the Value Stream level. By applying the framework correctly, organizations can be more efficient and maneuverable, making them more successful.
The SAFe for Teams training course tackles Scrum, XP and Lean practices that are focused on agile teams within medium and large organizations. All roles and responsibilities that SAFe 4.0 offers are addressed, along with the software engineering practices for upscaling Scrum.
This SAFe for Teams training course is suitable for Release Train Engineers, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, software developers, project leaders, designers, testers and others who are directly involved in software development.
To participate in this SAFe for Teams training course, some knowledge of agile working and a degree of experience in software development are an advantage. Good preparation is to follow the Agile Scrum Foundation training course.
Having completed the training course, each participant has the opportunity to take the SAFe Practitioner (SP) exam. You take this online exam via the Scaled Agile exam institute in a place of your choosing (the sole stipulation being that you do so within 10 days of completing the training course). Successful participants will be awarded the SAFe Practitioner (SP) certificate.
