Online SAFe Training

In response to the global pandemic, Pretty Agile moved all of its public SAFe training classes online in March 2020. We were surprised to find that the online learning experience was superior to in-person training, and the feedback from participants was overwhelmingly positive.  To quote one participant, "it was really beneficial because it allowed interaction between people across industries and countries that you’d never get in the same room physically."

How does Online SAFe Training from Pretty Agile work?

All our online SAFe training classes are delivered by two SPC/Ts. You will find most providers use one trainer for all classes except Implementing SAFe, where Scaled Agile Inc. requires two. At Pretty Agile, we know that two trainers lead to a better learning experience, so we make this investment for every class.

Our average online SAFe training course has 9 to 18 participants. We set up class activities in a way that enables all participants to interact with each other over the course of the class.

Technology Requirements

You will need a desktop or laptop computer with a webcam and internet access.

We used Zoom as the audiovisual backbone of our virtual training. You will need a Zoom account. (You can sign up for a free Zoom account if you don't already have one. ) While Zoom is accessible through a web browser we recommend installing the client on your computer for better stability. We ask students to register for the call in advance, to help us keep those Zoom-bombers at bay!

We use Slack for chat instead of Zoom chat. The allows us to build in redundancy in the unlikely case of a Zoom outage. Slack also has the advantage of being persistent post the class. We keep the Slack workspace live so you can continue to chat with your classmates and access the many resources shared during the course.

We will provide you with a link so that you can create a free Slack login. Even if you have an existing account, Slack requires you to set up your login for each workspace independently. We also recommend installing the client on your computer rather than using the web version.

Mural is our online collaboration tool. This is web-based so no installation is required. You will not need a login either as we will provide you with visitor access to the specific Murals spaces you will need for the course. Post the class you will receive copies of all the class Murals for your reference.

 

Timing and Breaks

Our classes run 9 am to 6 pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT). There is a 10-minute break at the top of every hour and a 45-minute meal break at 1 pm AEDT. We leave the Zoom call open during all breaks so folks can chat as they would in a physical classroom.

As classes are online you can attend from anywhere in the world. So far we have had participants join our online classes from all over Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, South Korea, China, Taiwan, India, Germany and the UK!
