Scaled Agile, SAFe® Certification Training

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) helps businesses address the significant challenges of developing and delivering enterprise-class software and systems. SAFe® synchronizes alignment, collaboration, and delivery for multiple Agile teams. Scalable and configurable, SAFe® allows each organization to adapt it to its own business needs. It supports smaller-scale solutions employing 50 – 125 practitioners, as well as complex systems that require thousands of people. An extensive body of knowledge, SAFe® describes the roles, responsibilities, artifacts, and activities necessary to implement Lean-Agile development.

Since the earliest days at Scaled Agile, the core belief has been simple: Better software and systems make the world a better place. ScaledAgile Version 5.0 represents the most ambitious expansion of that mission in history: to enable the business agility that is required for enterprises to compete and thrive in the digital age. This requires every part of the organization involved in delivering technology-based solutions – development, operations, manufacturing, legal, marketing, finance, compliance, sales, and others – to embrace the principles and practices of Lean and Agile. Seventy percent of Fortune 100 companies and a growing number of the Global 2000 have certified SAFe professionals and consultants on-site, and over 700,000 practitioners have been trained to date.

We have partnered with ScaledAgile Gold SPCT Partners to provide a range of SAFe® certified trainings, including the following certification training courses. Most courses are taught by SAFe® Program Consultant Trainers (SPCTs), of which there are only approx. 80 worldwide.
