SAFe for Teams

Scaling Agile from team Level with SP Certification

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is based fundamentally on the development and improvement of Agile teams. As we know, each team is responsible for defining, building, and testing stories from their backlog. Teams also deliver value in a series of fixed-length iterations also called as sprints. Teams use a common iteration cadence to synchronize work with other teams; this allows the entire system to iterate simultaneously. Teams generally employ Scrum (primarily) or Kanban methods. These derived methods are augmented for built-in quality practices. Many software quality practices are derived from extreme Programming, while hardware and system quality practices are derived from contemporary Lean product development practices. So, there is a need for teams to understand their role to implement Agility in their process of working.

This two-day training guide teams who are part of an Agile Release Train (ART) in the process of working in an Agile environment using Scrum, Kanban, and XP. The teams will learn how to become Agile Teams, build their backlog, and plan and execute iterations. Agile teams learn about their ART and their role in it, planning, executing, and improving with other teams. This class prepares teams to run a Program Increment (PI), including all meetings of the Team and Program level with a specific focus on the upcoming PI planning. Each ART is a long-lived, self-organizing team-of-Agile-teams: a virtual organization of about 50- 125 people who plan, commit, and execute together. The ART is comprised of cross–functional teams, and includes all the roles that are necessary to move ideas from concept through deployment, as illustrated below:
