Scaled Agile, Inc. (SAI), provider of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), the world’s most comprehensive framework for adopting Lean-Agile best practices across an enterprise, has announced the release of Dean Leffingwell’s Leading SAFe®: Leading the Lean-Agile Enterprise with the Scaled Agile Framework®, a LiveLessons downloadable video tutorial available through Pearson Education’s informIT, and informIT resellers.
Leading SAFe: Leading the Lean-Agile Enterprise with the Scaled Agile Framework, provides an in-depth exploration of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation by leveraging SAFe and its underlying principles of lean systems thinking, Agile development, and product development flow. By applying SAFe across the enterprise, software-dependent organizations can improve time-to-market, productivity, quality, and employee engagement, making them more Agile in the marketplace and more competitive in their industry.
“Our focus has always been on providing easily available resources that software-dependent enterprises can use to make a profound impact on their business outcomes and how they deliver value,” said Dean Leffingwell, Scaled Agile’s Chief Methodologist and CEO. “Our partnership with Pearson Education has made it possible to bridge the gap for people who may not be able to initially attend the 2-day Leading SAFe certification course, but still need to gain the knowledge necessary to start or continue their Lean-Agile transformation by leveraging SAFe.”
This 7+ hour course is delivered in eight key lessons where Dean presents high-level overviews, as well as specifics where they are most needed, exercises to test the viewer on what they’ve learned, and at the end of the course, clear-cut steps they can take to start their journey of transformation. After watching this video, viewers can expect to have an understanding of the Scaled Agile Framework; Lean thinking and embracing Agility; how to apply SAFe principles; how to plan, execute, and implement an Agile Release Train; how to build an Agile Portfolio; and how to Scale Leadership to the next level of enterprise performance.
