Leading SAFe training


Leading SAFe teaches leaders at all levels to apply Lean and Agile practices not just at the team level but at scale throughout the enterprise. It covers the principles and practices of Lean and Agile so that you can lead teams that are empowered to achieve outcomes. We reveal gotchas and traps, and supplement them with other knowledge where appropriate.  Students who take our classes get an additional Lab Zero benefit -- you can schedule an individual coaching session with us to help you prepare for the exam or put the concepts into practice.

Praise from our students

"As part of SAFe Scrum Master, we built a roadmap for making our teams more effective. Since I was interviewing for a new role, I framed the exercise in terms of my team in my next job. Here is the crazy thing: during the interview process, in preparation for an in-person interview, I sent this list (from the course) to my interviewer. Can you believe it? They canceled the interview and offered me the job!"
