Read Our Reviews

The introduction of Lean-Agile and DevOps principles and practices into software engineering has sparked new skills and approaches that help organisations deliver higher-quality, software-centric solutions faster and more predictably.

This three-day, workshop-oriented course explores foundational principles and practices and how continuous flow of value delivery and built-in quality are enabled by XP technical practices, Behavioural-Driven Development (BDD), and Test-Driven Development (TDD). Attendees will learn proven practices to detail, model, design, implement, verify, and validate stories in a SAFe Continuous Delivery Pipeline, as well as the practices that build quality into code and designs. Attendees will also explore how software engineering fits into the larger solution context and understand their role in collaborating on intentional architecture and DevOps.


Who will benefit from SAFe Agile Software Engineering?

This course is for the technical members of an Agile Team—developers and testers. Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Managers, and others with a less-technical background would also benefit and gain an understanding of the development process for more effective team collaboration.

My first Product Owner Product Manager training led by most amazing faculties Emma Sharrock and Melissa Hay!
It was a two-day training but I must say that it was the most effective, knowledgeable and interactive virtual session I could think of. Not for even a second did I feel bored or tired! Absolutely amazing!
Most Importantly, Learning about how SAFe works in the world of software engineering has been amazing experience and looking forward to enhance the process to fully adopt SAFe way of working.
On top of it, Meeting new people is always an exciting experience for me!
Thank you WTW for this opportunity to enhance my skillset.
