Leading SAFe® with Certified SAFe® Agilist (SA)

Learn how to thrive in the Digital Age with Business Agility with the Scaled Agile Framework®

Overview

Leading SAFe® offers an introduction to the foundations of SAFe and provides the principles and practices to confidently drive your Lean-Agile transformation. The course and resulting certification equip you with the guidance and tools to build a culture of resiliency and a shared language that engages employees and focuses on customers so that organizations can work with agility at scale.

During a Leading SAFe course you will discover how companies can build business agility, and how to make SAFe work inside your organization. You’ll come away with an understanding of how to align your entire organization around the same clear objectives, and how to improve the flow of value and work from strategy to delivery. You’ll learn what makes companies more customer-centric and how to run key SAFe alignment and planning events, like PI planning.

Leading SAFe will help you answer:

  • What is SAFe?
  • What is business agility and how does SAFe support it?
  • How does an organization get started with the Scaled Agile Framework®?

*Cprime is proud to be a Gold SPCT and Platform Level partner with Scaled Agile, the exclusive certifying body for the Scaled Agile Framework. Attending this class and passing the qualifying exam will earn you the SAFe® Agilist (SA) certification. This certification will prove that you have the knowledge necessary to lead the adoption of a SAFe implementation.
