Leading SAFe LiveLessons provides an in-depth exploration of the Scaled Agile Framework® (“SAFe®”) and how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation by leveraging SAFe and its underlying principles of lean systems thinking, agile development, and product development flow. By applying SAFe across the enterprise, software-dependent organizations can improve time-to-market, productivity, quality, and employee engagement, making them more agile in the marketplace and more competitive in their industry.

Description

The goal of this course is to equip you with the knowledge necessary to lead a Lean-Agile transformation at enterprise scale. Your guide will be Chief Methodologist Dean Leffingwell, the creator of the Framework. In his signature pragmatic style, Dean leads you through eight key lessons where you’ll get high-level overviews, as well as specifics where you most need them; exercises to test yourself on what you’ve learned; and at the end of the course, clear-cut steps you can take to start your journey of transformation. After watching this video, you can expect to have an understanding of the Scaled Agile Framework; Lean thinking and embracing Agility; how to apply SAFe principles; how to plan, execute, and implement an Agile Release Train; how to build an Agile Portfolio; and how to Scale Leadership to the next level of enterprise performance.
