During this four-day SAFe Program Consultant certification course, attendees will learn how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation by using the practices and principles of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and the seven core competencies of the Lean Enterprise.

Attendees will practice how SAFe Program Consultants coach programs, launch Agile Release Trains, create a DevOps culture to build a Continuous Delivery Pipeline, and empower a Lean Portfolio.

Implementing SAFe is the only Scaled Agile training that covers all 7 core competencies of Business Agility and an in-depth exploration of the 12-critical moves required to successfully implement SAFe in the enterprise.

Becoming a change agent and a Certified SAFe Program Consultant (SPC) enables attendees to coach and guide the enterprise toward success in a disruptive marketplace, and empowers them to implement a Lean-Agile SAFe transformation.
