Introduction

safe 5 spcAchieving business agility with the Scaled Agile Framework®

During this four-day course, attendees will learn how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation by using the practices and principles of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and the seven core competencies of the Lean Enterprise.
