During this four-day Implementing SAFe course with SPC certification, attendees will learn how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation by using the practices and principles of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and the seven core competencies of the Lean Enterprise.

Attendees will practice how SAFe Program Consultants coach programs, launch Agile Release Trains, create a DevOps culture to build a Continuous Delivery Pipeline, and empower a Lean Portfolio.

Implementing SAFe is the only Scaled Agile training that covers all 7 core competencies of Business Agility and in-depth exploration of the 12-critical moves required to successfully implement SAFe in the enterprise.

Becoming a change agent and a Certified SAFe Program Consultant (SPC) enables attendees to coach and guide the enterprise toward success in a disruptive marketplace, and empowers them to implement a Lean-Agile SAFe transformation.

Following the overwhelming success of our online Implementing SAFe training, we plan to continue to offer public training online to make it accessible to our clients around Australia and across the globe. You can learn about our approach to remote SAFe training here.

Enjoyable 4-day learning and special credit to my two great trainers Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson from Pretty Agile - I got an exam pass!

Thank you for the great class and your fruitful experience to help us understand the theories behind. You and Em are doing super great - so luck to have both of you being our coaches!

Both of them are super experienced and put their lifelong learning into a book named "The ART of Avoiding a Train Wreck" (could find in Amazon) with a foreword by Dean Leffingwell who created SAFe! Lots of practical learnings have been found there.

I don't like reading book most of the time (except Harry Potter) but I do find it quite enjoyable if you are also in the journey. If you are also a Lean fans like me, probably you will enjoy their explanation how the lean thinking being connected and executed. Enjoy~

Certified SAFe 5.0 Program Consultant (SPC)! OK, this was exciting. Challenging but exciting and fun nonetheless.

After practicing SAFe for 4 years I decided to complete my SAFe Program Consultant certification. I researched multiple companies that provided this training but decided to go with Pretty Agile. I am so glad I did! Em and Adrienne are extremely experienced with implementing SAFe at various organisations and were able to link practical experiences to the course content. This made for such a better learning experience and made the exam much easier. If you are thinking about doing this course or any other SAFe certification, do yourself a favour and connect with Pretty Agile.

Tanesh Naidoo
Scrum Master, Chevron

Privileged and humbled to have been coached by such consummate professionals. Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson are wiser beyond their years, particularly with being able to expertly navigate us through the virtual training. Their best-selling books are a treasure trove of useful wisdom gathered over their many years of experience in this domain. If you're thinking about doing the course, then don't hesitate and book it in. It's everything you need and more!

Garrath Tonkin

Em and Adrienne - When i signed up for this mid-night class, I wasn't sure about how much I would actually learn. But you both made the learning very easy by sharing your experiences and helping relate the "book" knowledge to real-life. Thank you!!

I thoroughly enjoyed the classes and would absolutely recommend it to all my friends. ????????

Thank you to Em and Adrienne for sharing your experience, which for me really helped bring the content to life and understand how it could be applied. I am very grateful.

Jeffrey Davidson
Founder, Leading Great Teams, LLC

With experience in agile, scrum, SAFe, and training I didn't want to take any class. I wanted to take training from someone who understands how to share information, engage the (virtual) classroom, and use their experience to get beyond the wordy slides and talk about real-world implementations. And the person I wanted training from more than anyone else is Em Campbell-Pretty. She and Adrienne did a marvellous job and kept me engaged despite the 9-hour time difference. Yes, my class started at 5:30PM local and ran until 2:30AM. And it was worth it!

Jason Cull
Agile Business Coach, Chevron

I managed to pass one of the hardest exams I have ever done to become a SAFe 5 Program Consultant today.
Thank you to Em Campbell-Pretty, Adrienne Wilson and everyone else attended Pretty Agile's first online SPC training course. I cannot recommend Pretty Agile highly enough as a training provider for SAFe. Both instructors went above and beyond to ensure we had the best opportunities for learning.

Judith van der Linden
Agile Program Change Manager, Chevron

I thoroughly enjoyed your ‘Implementing SAFe’ class in July. I have to admit, I was a bit worried about what the virtual experience would be like but you have it down to an art (pun intended 😉). The four days flew by, thanks to the mix of engaging facilitators, well timed breaks and seamless technology. I hope virtual options remain a permanent offering for training providers as it opens up more opportunities, especially if for those not based on the East Coast. Keep up the great work

Len Walter
Chief Technology Officer/CTO/CIO from startup to ASX300

Really enjoyed the Implementing SAFe course from the guys at Pretty Agile. If anyone's hesitant to invest in training while it's all happening over Zoom, I say - don't! With the right approach and tools, the four days flew by. Kudos to Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson, and the guys in the US who did 5pm-2am every day!

SAFe 5 has gone beyond large-scale product development into the mindset and culture to increase whole-of-business agility. I wonder if we're seeing the early results of that in the rapid business transformation in response to COVID at telcos and banks, frequent adopters of SAFe. Exciting times!
