We recently crossed an important milestone. Over 200,000 people have now received training through our SAFe training and certification program. That’s a lot of folks who can speak, implement, and ‘be’ SAFe. A Lean-Agile community of this size—trained on globally standardized courses—has never existed until now. So, how did we get here, and what did we learn along the way? It started with a couple of books A decade or so back, the movement to.

Hello everyone, You may have read Dean’s recent blog post about the expansion of our thought leadership capabilities to keep advancing the Scaled Agile Framework and associated courseware.

For example, at the October SAFe Summit in San Antonio we.
Hi Folks, The Scaled Agile Framework has many moving parts but the overarching intent is to deliver value quickly, cost-effectively, and on target. Sometimes it’s hard to connect the dots, but I wanted to call out a couple of SAFe Summit presentations from SAFe Fellows and Principal Consultants Inbar Oren and Richard Knaster that help tie together two key Framework elements, the Continuous Delivery Pipeline and DevOps.

Hello Folks, It’s my great pleasure to announce that we have made a major expansion of our thought leadership capabilities to keep advancing the Scaled Agile Framework and associated courseware.

“The fact that we delivered for the biggest industry event of the year was hugely motivating and moved us from a negative to a positive spiral. The business was a bit surprised and shocked that we did what we said we would do on something that was quite big and complicated. There’s no way we could have done it without SAFe.” —Paul Littlefair, CIO, Livestock Improvement Corp. How do you deliver with confidence when you.
We’re always looking for ways to use online venues to complement our world-class, instructor-led training. The most recent is my LiveLessons video tutorial on the 4.5 version of Scaled Agile’s most popular course, Leading SAFe. The tutorial is being provided through Pearson’s InformIT and InformIT resellers. In this nine-hour course, I provide an in-depth exploration of version 4.5 of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) and how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation at enterprise scale. The 4.5.
“SAFe provided the agility, visibility, and transparency needed to ensure we could integrate with numerous other efforts, get predictable in our delivery, and ensure timelines are met.” —David McMunn, Director of Fannie Mae’s Agile COE For those of you watching SAFe in the government space, there’s good reason to get excited about our latest case study from Fannie Mae. While we know of several SAFe deployments in government and the military, this is the first.
At the 2017 SAFe Summit, Dr. Chuck Pezeshki, Ryan Martens, and myself presented Extending Lean-Agile Leadership Skills with Empathetic Leadership to a standing-room only audience of interested souls. This talk was the result of weeks of work compiling our collective knowledge into a 45-minute synchronized talk presenting our individual perspectives and understandings. The main takeaway from our talk was the following: As we continuously nurture our set of development value streams, and strive to deliver.
As I mentioned in my Summit keynote blog post, nearly 1200 people from 27 countries attended the 2nd annual SAFe Summit last month. This is the largest gathering of the SAFe community of practice to date, and the wide variety of high-quality presentations being made in San Antonio were a big draw for many people.
