BOULDER, Colo. (PRWEB) March 05, 2019
Scaled Agile, Inc., provider of the world’s leading framework for enterprise agility, today announced open registration for the 2019 Global SAFe Summit, which will take place September 29 – October 4 at the Marriott Marquis in San Diego, CA. With over 1,700 attendees expected, the 6-day event will be the world’s largest gathering to focus exclusively on the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe) and its community of practice.
The 2019 Global SAFe Summit is a ‘big tent’ event for everyone engaged with SAFe—practitioners, trainers, consultants, Scaled Agile Partners, and enterprise business leaders. The event will feature pre- and post-conference training and workshops and a two-day main conference.
Attendees will have opportunities to build skills, exchange knowledge, network with each other, connect with thought leaders and influencers, and see firsthand how enterprises are leveraging SAFe to achieve business agility and enable digital transformation initiatives.
“Achieving business agility compels far-reaching changes in culture, behavior, and mindset,” said Dean Leffingwell, creator of SAFe and Chief Methodologist at Scaled Agile, Inc. “The people attending the SAFe Summit are the ones setting the pace for that change; modeling it and enabling it in others. To be able to engage with these accomplished professionals in the field at one time and in one place is an extraordinary opportunity for all those attending the Summit.”
Described as being “all things SAFe, all in one place,” the 2019 Global SAFe Summit combines three key events:
