Achieving Business Agility with the Scaled Agile Framework

During this four-day Scaled Agile 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.

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. 🙏🙌
Thank you Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson. Material was well presented and complemented by practical tips from past experience. Cheers!
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 to Em and Adrienne for sharing your experience, which for me really helped bring the content to life and understand how it could be applied. I am very grateful.
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!
I managed to pass one of the hardest exams I have ever done to become a SAFe 5 Program Consultant today.Thank you to Em Campbell-Pretty, Adrienne Wilson and everyone else attended Pretty Agile's first online SPC training course. I cannot recommend Pretty Agile highly enough as a training provider for SAFe. Both instructors went above and beyond to ensure we had the best opportunities for learning. #Agile #SAFe #SPC #Chevron #prettyagile
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
Yes! Passed the Certified SAFe 5 Program Consultant exam!Thanks to Em Campbell-Pretty and Adrienne Wilson at Pretty Agile for delivering the course. Can't recommend you highly enough as trainers; your knowledge of the subject area knows no bounds!#SAFe #Agile #SPC
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!#agile #safe5 #businessagility #businesstransformation
