Leading SAFe®

In a nutshell

You need a control system for the collaboration of several agile teams? Do you use agility only for specific topics and selectively, but not yet company-wide?
With increasing agilisation and conversion from a project to a product organisation, more and more agile teams are working together within an overall project. Agile teams therefore scale within the company and the individual teams must be coordinated with each other. The control effort increases and the simple agile frameworks no longer meet the increasingly complex requirements. Very few companies have completely implemented a company-wide scaling of their agile teams.

That's exactly where Scaled Agile, Inc. (USA) with its Scaled Agile Framework SAFe® offers the most mature framework for scaled agility to date.

What we offer

EASY AND Simple - We bring the crucial background knowledge with us:
  • In-depth expertise in change management and in the (cultural) transformation of large organisations. We are not a "bull in the china shop", and also take into account the emotional challenges of all those involved.
  • Broad experience knowledge for the sustainable transformation of mindset & behavior - without this aspect a scaled agile transformation will always fail in the long run!
  • The "SAFe® Implementation Roadmap" is a good starting point for the implementation of SAFe®. We show you what else you need: a high-caliber change coalition for enterprise-wide agile change, the necessary organizational development and cultural transformation.
  • We avoid the technical IT language of many agile models as far as possible and adapt the terms and ideas to every type of organization and product.
  • We season your scaled Agile Transformation with some crucial change ingredients to ensure a sustainable change of structure AND culture.
For these reasons we extend the seminar "Leading SAFe ®" from 2 (our competition) to 3 days. This enables a deeper reflection of important contents and at the same time a solid preparation for the certification.
