Transitioning to Lean-Agile practices for building technology-based capabilities is especially challenging in the government context. But issues of legacy governance, contracting, and organisational barriers can be overcome with the right information and strategies. During this two-day SAFe for Government course, attendees will learn the principles and practices of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), how to execute and release value through Agile Release Trains, and what it means to lead a Lean-Agile transformation of a program inside a government agency.
Attendees will gain an understanding of the Lean-Agile mindset and why it’s an essential foundation for transformation. They’ll also get practical advice on building high performing, multi-vendor Agile teams and programs, managing technology investments in Lean flow, acquiring solutions with Agile contracting, launching the program, and planning and delivering value using SAFe. Attendees will also learn how specific leadership behaviours can drive successful organisational change, even in government.
This course is designed for government leaders and influencers who can guide the decision to adopt SAFe within their agency or program. Examples include:
All are welcome to attend the course, regardless of experience. However, meeting the following prerequisites will make the training more productive.
To perform the role of a SAFe for Government leader and become certified as a SAFe Government Practitioner attendees should be able to:
Attendees may be eligible to apply for PDUs toward their continuing education requirements with the Project Management Institute (PMI) for PMP, PgMP, and PMI-ACP certifications.
Certified SAFe professionals may be eligible to apply for Scrum Education Units (SEUs) toward earning or renewing a Certified Scrum Professional (CSP) designation through the Scrum Alliance under Category C: Outside Events. Please confirm requirements with Scrum Alliance’s SEU policy before submitting units for credit.
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!
