Upcoming Scaled Agile Certification Training

I will be facilitating the first ever Scaled Agile Framework SAFe Agilist certification training for Los Angeles and Orange County at the end of this month. 

For those who aren't familiar, the Scaled Agile Framework is a set of practices and additional roles that sit on top of Scrum that allow scaling to the program and portfolio levels. 

Personally, I have seen it address issues in aligning multiple (5+) teams, provide clear guidance and real support for architecture and UX needs, transform culture and deliver astonishing results. 

On the practical side, my view is that we are in the Late Adopter stage of agile adoption, and that group is typically quite risk averse and prefers a plan. Compare this with typical agile coaching that I have done where the plan is almost 100% contextual (figure it out). Not that that's bad, only that it really needs several things to be successful - a culture that is comfortable with a lot of unknowns and loose plan, support from mid-management and departmental leads, and dedicated coaching.
 
"The SAFe Agilist certification program is for executives, managers and Agile change agents responsible for leading a Lean|Agile change initiative in a large software enterprise. It validates their knowledge in applying the Scaled Agile Framework, lean, and product development flow principles in an enterprise context so they can lead the adoption of the Scaled Agile Framework."

Hope to see you there!
