SAFe Scrum/XP for Teams

The SAFe Scrum/XP for Teams training course extends your Scrum learning by incorporating Lean thinking and software engineering practices. These additional topics are critical to producing quality code and scaling Scrum to the enterprise level.  

Through the blended use of lecture, discussions and experiential exercises, you will begin your agile transformation by building actual product backlogs. At the end of the training, you will be prepared for the release planning meeting that is part of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) Agile Release Train (ART).

We begin the course with an introduction to the principles underlying the SAFe, including Lean thinking, the Agile Manifesto, development practices and an introduction to the SAFe. The training also includes the best practices necessary to effectively build increments of high quality software during iterations.

This training targets software developers, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, business analysts, testing resources, project and program managers, product managers and other roles involved in developing and releasing software. This training is an integral part of the ART Quickstart Program that is delivered to both new and existing Agile teams to establish a baseline for scaling Agile.
