    LEADING SAFe® 4.5

    This two-day course teaches the Lean-Agile principles and practices of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®). You’ll learn how to execute and release value through Agile Release Trains, how to build an Agile Portfolio, and how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation at enterprise scale. You will gain an understanding of the Lean-Agile mindset and how to apply the principles and practices of SAFe to support Agile teams, programs, program portfolio management, and to coordinate large Value Streams.

    Attending the class prepares you to take the exam and become a certified SAFe® Agilist (SA).

    Lean-Agile principles (or an equivalent agile training) is a way to prepare for the PMI-ACP® exam.  It provides an important foundation needed for preparation, and counts towards the 21 hours contact hours of professional education needed to sit for the PMI-ACP® exam.  Agile training is also a way to maintain your PMI-ACP® because it counts towards the Professional Development Units (PDUs) you need to satisfy your renewal requirements.
