Standard Fee: S$ 4190

SAFe® Program Consultants (SPCs) are change agents who combine their technical knowledge of SAFe with an intrinsic motivation to improve the company’s software and systems development processes. They play a critical role in successfully implementing SAFe. SPCs come from numerous internal or external roles, including business and technology leaders, portfolio/program/project managers, process leads, architects, analysts, and consultants.
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®). Attendees will also gain insights and practice how to coach programs, launch Agile Release Trains, build a Continuous Delivery Pipeline with DevOps culture, and empower a Lean Portfolio.
Becoming a SAFe® 4 Program Consultant (SPC), and becoming a change agent, will enable attendees to coach and guide their enterprise to succeed in a disruptive marketplace and empower them to implement a Lean-Agile SAFe transformation.
The first two days of the course is an intensive version of Leading SAFe®. The goal is to prepare SAFe Program Consultants (SPCs) to teach the course and act as a certifying agent for SAFe Agilists (SAs). You will also gain the knowledge necessary to lead an enterprise agile transformation by leveraging the Scaled Agile Framework and its underlying principles of lean thinking and product development flow.
The last two days focus exclusively on what it takes to successfully implement SAFe in the enterprise. You will gain the knowledge needed to identify, plan, and implement SAFe programs with Agile Release Trains. Further, you’ll have the briefings, artefacts and templates you need to identify the value streams, prepare the organisation, launch Agile programs, plan and execute the major events, and implement effective processes and measures for continuous program improvement.
The goal of this course is to prepare you to:
- Lead an enterprise agile transformation
- Implement the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe)
- Train managers and executives in Leading SAFe and act as a SAFe Agilist (SA) certifying agent
- Train teams in SAFe Scrum for Teams and act as a SAFe Practitioner (SP) certifying agent
