Optimising Your Value Stream

To compete in a disruptive global market, every organisation needs to deliver valuable technology solutions at the speed of business. This requires a shared DevOps mindset among all the people needed to define, build, test, deploy, and release software-driven systems—not just the engineers operating a CI/CD pipeline. Join a SAFe DevOps class and validate you learning by earning your SDP certification.

The two-day, interactive course helps people across technical, non-technical, and leadership roles work together to optimise their value stream from end to end. Attendees will learn what DevOps is, why it is important to every role, and design a continuous delivery pipeline that is tailored to their business. Attendees work in cross-functional teams to map their current state value stream from concept to cash, identify major bottlenecks to flow, and build an actionable implementation plan that will accelerate the benefits of DevOps in their organisation.

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