BOULDER, Colo. (PRWEB) December 14, 2017
Scaled Agile, Inc. (SAI), provider of SAFe®, the world’s leading framework for enterprise agility, today announced the release of Leading SAFe® 4.5: Leading the Lean-Agile Enterprise with the Scaled Agile Framework®, a LiveLessons video tutorial available through InformIT and InformIT resellers.
Presented by the Framework’s creator, Dean Leffingwell, this nine-hour course provides an in-depth exploration of version 4.5 of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation at enterprise scale. The LiveLessons video format is designed for busy professionals as it allows them to watch the entire video or navigate directly to the content of choice, resulting in a customizable, self-paced learning environment.
- A high-level overview of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)
- The principle cornerstones of the Framework: thinking Lean and embracing agility
- How the Framework builds upon Lean, systems thinking, and Agile development: the nine SAFe Principles for Lean-Agile development at enterprise scale
- How to scale Lean-Agile development from the Team to the Program, Large Solution, and Portfolio level

“The Leading SAFe LiveLessons video complements our efforts to provide world-class instructor-led training,” said Chris James, President and Chief Operating Officer, Scaled Agile, Inc. “It bridges the gap for people who may not be able to initially attend the two-day Leading SAFe certification course, but still need to gain the knowledge necessary to start or continue their Lean-Agile transformation. And for enterprises looking for consistent results as they introduce employees to the SAFe way of working, this video is an ideal addition to their training catalog.”
“The 4.5 version of Leading SAFe LiveLessons is not a minor update,” said Dean Leffingwell, Scaled Agile’s Chief Methodologist and CEO. “It is an entirely new video that captures the latest advances and innovations of the Framework. From the SAFe Implementation Roadmap to the new Scalable DevOps and Continuous Delivery Pipeline, there’s a wealth of content for enterprises looking to gain the latest business benefits that can be achieved through SAFe.”
Praise for the previous edition of Leading SAFe LiveLessons:
“This was my first introduction to the SAFe Framework and although overwhelming, it is well put together and full of hands-on exercises and videos to enforce the concepts. This course takes you through the entire Framework from Team to Program and details the activities involved in each level. Dean adds a few extras toward the end that cover leadership and team motivation. Excellent course to have as a reference as my organization goes through this transformation.”
