Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) June 23, 2016 -- Scaled Agile, Inc. (SAI), provider of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), has announced the release of Dean Leffingwell’s "Leading SAFe® 4.0 Live Lessons: Leading the Lean-Agile Enterprise with the Scaled Agile Framework®," a video tutorial available through Pearson Education’s informIT and informIT resellers.
The video course provides an in-depth exploration of version 4.0 of the Framework and how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation with SAFe. It leverages SAFe and its underlying principles of Agile development, systems thinking, and lean product development. By applying SAFe across the enterprise, system and 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.
“As a company that focuses on continuous learning, our goal is to provide easily available resources that system and software-dependent enterprises can use to make a profound impact on their business outcomes,” said Dean Leffingwell, Scaled Agile’s co-founder and Chief Methodologist. “Our long-term 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. The self-paced LiveLessons video format is ideal for busy professionals as it allows them to explore one topic at one time and then come back later and learn a different subject.”
This course is delivered in nine lessons where Dean presents high-level overviews, as well as specifics where needed, exercises to test the viewer on what they’ve learned, and at the end of the course, clear-cut steps to start the 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; how to build really large systems with the Value Stream layer, and how to scale leadership to the next level of enterprise performance.
