SAFe 5 Agile Software Engineering
with SAFe Agile Software Engineer (ASE) certification
Enabling Technical Agility for the Lean Enterprise

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.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions in Australia all Pretty Agile SAFe Agile Software Engineering classes are being delivered live online. You can learn about our approach to remote SAFe training here.

SAFe LPM was a great course for deepening understanding of portfolio level and how work makes it through to teams. If you're interested in the upstream view of work before agile squads start delivering on it, then I recommend it. I found it compliments the Leading SAFe course very nicely. And of course, it was great to have Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson as our guides over the three days. Their real-world experience helped bring the textbook to life.

A few aha! moments from a very insightful 2 day course on Leading SAFe. Many thanks to Claire Sanders and Emma Sharrock from Pretty Agile. Even though our teams have adopted SAFe for awhile now, found some key learnings I'm sure will help resolve some of our pain points #lifelonglearning #leadbyexample #organizetomaximiseflow

I'm pleased to announce my first 2021 goal has been met - having become a Certified SAFe Agilist!
Big thanks to the Pretty Agile team of Emma Sharrock and Claire Sanders for the excellent materials and course delivery via Zoom, and to my globally distributed classmates for making it interesting and asking great questions. Great to challenge myself with some study and examination time pressure - proof my mindset is still open to learning new things!

Thank you Emma Sharrock & Claire Sanders for such an informative and interactive online training session. ☺️

Matthias Prilipp
Product Manager - New Technologies, Porsche Cars Australia Pty.Ltd.

The Agile Product Management certification has been a great introduction to the Scaled Agile Framework. Em and Adrienne cover all important areas of modern agile product management and have given me the tools to apply the principles of the framework to my day-to-day business. I did enjoy the online format as it gave me more flexibility and allowed us to discuss the framework in an international context with participants from overseas. The team from Pretty Agile made this a seamless experience and I’m looking forward to my next course.

Tiffany Apatu
Director/AVP of Product Design at PCCW GLOBAL Limited

Em and Adrienne always provide an engaging session! I appreciate their real-world perspective and ability to connect course content to their own experience. This was my first online training course and the pace, timing, combination of consuming and participating was great. Their approach to logistics was top-notch anticipating and mitigating the potential issues that come with learning in a remote environment.

Ashley Moors
Business Analyst, AusNet Services

Thanks to Em Campbell-Pretty and Emma Sharrock for running an engaging and insightful course for SAFe Scrum Master Certification.
The course, run online, was expertly facilitated with plenty of opportunity for the participants to engage and discuss during the break out activities.
Em and Emma also shared their personal experiences in the world of agile, which strengthened the course material. I would strongly recommend Pretty Agile to anyone thinking of taking a SAFe certification.

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!

Deran Hewavitharane
Senior Business Analyst | Product Owner, HUB24

Em and Claire had really good practical insights for concepts discussed on the SAFe model that we could take away to try out in our environment as Product owners. They also had the skills, knowledge and the right tools to be conducting the SAFe POPM class on a remote basis, given the prevailing lockdowns in Melbourne. Several group activities were conducted throughout the two days that kept the us really engaged with the rest of the attendees while being able to learn from their experiences.

JP Kearney
Senior Scrum Master, USAA

So this probably goes without saying, but if you are on the fence about this class take it! Em Campbell-Pretty & Adrienne Wilson were fantastic. And I feel like they have this remote learning model mastered!

It's a great experience remote, and across time zones - exam prep next 😀 Thx to Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson! #kudos #training #education

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. ????????

Guy Edgar
Senior Consultant at State of Matter

Thanks Em and Adrienne - really enjoyed the course and considering how tricky remote learning can be you kept us engaged and motivated all the way through!

Thank you again Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson and the girls at Pretty Agile! Passed with flying colours and owe it all to your fantastic training facilitation! Love your work! 🙂

Jackie Penno
Senior Project Program Manager, Australian Electoral Commission

Continuing with professional development during these COVID19 times has not only been engaging but has also provided me the opportunity to learn and collaborate with professionals from across Australia and Asia that I normally would not get the chance to meet. Yet here we all are learning in the Zoom Video Communications classroom, working together on the MURAL whiteboard for visual collaboration and using Slack channels for every conversation.
Thanks to the amazing team (Claire and Melissa) from Pretty Agile for delivering a great course!

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!

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!
