SAFe Implementation Roadmap with an Eye for Real Results

Our trainers and coaches have many years of hands-on experience creating and executing an Agile scaling strategy for organizations–including Scaled Agile Framework using the SAFe® Implementation Roadmap. We can conduct private training for all SAFe® classes as well as coach teams through their first Agile Release Train. Training, coaching or both–we are here to help guide you through a successful SAFe implementation. 

Leading SAFe

This course is for enterprises ready to scale Agile across a larger organization using Lean-Agile principles and practices of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®). Students will learn how to execute and release value through Agile Release Trains, how to create an Agile portfolio, and how to lead and nurture teams the Agile way. Students will receive their SAFe® Agilist (SA) certification at the completion of the 2-day class and upon passing the exam. Register for an upcoming public Leading SAFe® workshop.

SAFe For Teams

The SAFe For Teams class prepares team members with the knowledge and skills necessary for the successful launch of an Agile Release Train, the construct for delivering value within the Scaled Agile Framework. During this 2-day course, participants will learn how to plan and execute iterations and Program Increments (PI), how to use different Agile frameworks like Scrum, Kanban, and XP to become more effective, and ways to continuously improve while decreasing cross-team dependencies that bog down value delivery.

SAFe ScrumMaster

SAFe ScrumMaster helps participants understand and unlock the Scaled Agile Framework in order to coordinate the ideation, creation, and delivery of value across the enterprise. This certification is for individuals and organizations who need to understand the Scrum Master role in order to shift from a command & control way to management to one of servant leadership. Learning more about the Scrum Master role will help teams perform at a higher level, including helping teams become more predictable in their value delivery and to improve innovation and agility.

SAFe PO/PM

Develop skill sets needed to guide the delivery of value in a Lean enterprise—and learn about the activities, tools, and mechanics used to manage backlogs and programs—by becoming a SAFe® Product Owner/Product Manager (POPM). During this two-day course, attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of the Agile Release Train (ART), how it delivers value, and what they can do to effectively perform the PO/PM role.

SAFe Advanced ScrumMaster

This two-day course prepares current Scrum Masters for their leadership role in facilitating Agile team, program, and enterprise success in a SAFe® implementation.  It enhances the Scrum paradigm with an introduction to scalable engineering and DevOps practices; the application of Kanban to facilitate the flow of value; and supporting interactions with architects, product management, and other critical stakeholders in the larger program and enterprise contexts.

Scaling Agile With A Trusted  Scaled Agile Coach

After conducting Leading SAFe training, it is time to prepare for the initial launch of Agile Release Trains (ART). Agile Release Trains are the building blocks of value delivery within the SAFe® framework. Our scaled Agile coach will help your organization identify value streams, create an implementation plan, and then work with teams to successfully execute more Agile Release Trains and value streams. Scaled Agile coaches will also work with leadership to extend SAFe beyond teams to the portfolio level and to sustain momentum though advanced training, coaching, and mentorship.

Implementing Scaled Agile Framework With Agile Velocity

We take a pragmatic, customized approach to scaling Agile and transforming the whole enterprise. While the Scaled Agile Framework is the most popular frameworks for scaling agility, it is not the only one. Our job as experts is to address the unique pains and goals of the organization, assess how teams are doing against their objectives, and work with leadership to create a plan (that may include concepts from SAFe and other frameworks) for success.

Our Process

1. Assess readiness for scaling Agile

Our main scaling philosophy is “Scale the excellence.” During this step, our coaches will work with teams and leadership to determine if you have a strong Agile foundation.

2. Determine Agile scaling strategy

Using our mastery of frameworks including the SAFe® implementation roadmap, we work with leadership to create a scaling strategy that works to accomplish business objectives.

3. Full steam ahead

We have the capability to partner with organizations to help them execute the SAFe® implementation roadmap in part (training or coaching) or in full (training and coaching) or a  custom scaling strategy.
