Description

Leading SAFe® 4.5 Training

While the benefits of Agile are many, implementations on scale have often been unsuccessful because of challenges that involve collaborative teams, complex systems and geographies. In order for Agile to have a successful impact, there needs to be a cohesive process by which it is implemented across the organization. The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) is a proven methodology that helps large-scale Agile project teams to carry out an Agile transformation across the enterprise. Created by Dean Laffingwell, SAFe® effortlessly synchronizes the alignment, collaboration, and delivery of multiple agile teams leading the way to enterprise success.

Based on version 4.5 of SAFe® our 2-day Leading SAFe® training workshop brought to you in conjunction with KnowledgeHut, gives you the knowledge required to become a Certified SAFe® 4 Agilist, and lead agile transformation within your enterprise using the Scaled Agile Framework. You will learn about the underlying principles of flexibility, lean thinking and product development flow that SAFe® encompasses. Led by industry experts, this workshop will help you gain the technical skills and credential that will set you apart from your peers.

Prerequisites:

Successful completion of this Scaled Agile Framework training course prepares you to take the SAFe®  4 Agilist (SA) certification exam.

However, the following prerequisites are highly recommended for those who intend to take the SA certification exam.

  • Scaled Agile Academy encourages taking the exam in one sitting, but you may take it over the course of several days. i.e. You could exit the exam at any point and come back to it later or even the next day. When you log back in, you will be taken to the beginning. You will need to click through till you reach your first unanswered question.
  • The exam has to be completed in its entirety by midnight of the last day.
  • If you are completing the exam in one sitting, it could take up to 3 hours. So if you are starting the exam on the last day, time it accordingly (start around 8pm or so) so you could complete it before 12am.
