SAFe for Teams
Build the skills needed to become a high-performing team member of an Agile Release Train (ART)—and learn how to collaborate effectively with other teams—by becoming a SAFe® 4 Practitioner (SP). During this two-day course, attendees will gain an in-depth understanding of the ART, how it delivers value, and what they can do to effectively perform their role using Scrum, Kanban, and XP.
They will also learn how to write stories and break down features, plan and execute iterations, and plan Program Increments. Finally, they’ll learn about the continuous delivery pipeline and DevOps culture, how to effectively integrate with other teams in the program, and what it takes to continuously improve the train.

We're currently not running a scheduled SAFe for Teams course, but we'll happily come and deliver the course on-site. There can be many advantages to setting up an on-site course including the ability to have focussed discussions regarding the practices of your organisation. SAFe for Teams is also great to deliver to a whole team, especially one that is about to embark on their first Programme Increment. See the details below to discuss further.
