A learning path for career success

Why SAFe Agile Training is needed?

We live in a faster economy era which is fuelled through technology, organizations who can best harness the advances in technology and respond to customer needs will reap the rewards. These technological advances are built on software and systems that are in every business, driving innovation, new business models and ways of working.

Many organizations fail or are slow to benefit from these technology advancements because they struggle to develop software and the systems.

SAFe Agile training helps organizations who understand the urgency and the need for change who adopt new ways of working thrive while others struggle and may be extinct.

SAFe

Values

Alignment
The key to autonomy and decentralized decision making, when we have a shared purpose and are aligned on achieving it.

Built-in Quality
We can not inspect for quality at the end it needs to built in the ways of working.

Transparency
Knowledge work is invisible, we need transparency to provide visibility across the organization.

Program Execution
SAFe is built on the ability for the Agile Release Trains to execute and deliver. Alignment, Built-in Quality and Transparency pave the way for Program Execution.

Principles

SAFe is based on nine key principles:

1.Take an economic view

2. Apply systems thinking

3. Assume variability; preserve options

4. Build incrementally with fast, integrated learning cycles

5. Base milestones on an objective evaluation of working systems

6. Visualize and limit WIP, reduce batch sizes, and manage queue lengths

7. Apply cadence, synchronize with cross-domain planning

8. Unlock the intrinsic motivation of knowledge workers

9. Decentralize decision
