New Product Manager /Product Owner (PMPO) Course and Certification The SAFe 4.0 Product Manager / Product Owner course with PMPO Certification has been added to Scaled Agile’s role-based curriculum offering.

Hi Folks, We’ve been taking a pass through the nine SAFe Lean-Agile Principles articles with an eye towards continuous improvement, and also to better align these critical articles with the courseware that depends on them. After all, without firm principles, even a good framework doesn’t have a solid foundation to stand on. One of the first orders of business was the restructuring of Principle #1 – Take an economic view, and its partner article (and.
Program Execution is one of the four core values of SAFe. Successful program execution is a result of a collaboration, including the key roles of the Product Owner, Release Train Engineer and Scrum Master. In a complex solution, multi-team environment, the role of the SAFe Scrum Master must be extended to include additional skills and practices beyond the traditional team-centric Scrum Master role. To this end, Scaled Agile has just released the SAFe® Advanced Scrum Master course. As a next step in.
Hi Folks, This “Highlights” series captures the SAFe news and activities that haven’t been covered in other posts, but would still provide real value to the community. Here’s the latest roundup—a mix of SAFe events, new perspectives, understanding, and practical steps for successful implementation of the Framework. 2016 Scaled Agile Summit – Save the Date October 25–28 The SAFe event of the year is in the works, and the full registration site is coming soon..
Best known for being a global leader in navigation and mapping products, TomTom is also the mapping provider for Apple Maps, and the maps and traffic data provider for Uber drivers in over 300 cities worldwide. An interesting thing about TomTom’s SAFe adoption is that it started in 2012, which gives us a view into a fast-growing company that has worked within the Framework over a five-year period. There were some early wins (see quote.
In an earlier post, we described an abridged version of the SAFe Lean Agile Principles that we have been working on. They have now been reviewed and updated a bit, so I just posted them as a summary under the main Principles page. That way they won’t just be floating around in blog land, and instead, take their place as first class citizens of SAFe, where they really belong. By the way, that “Introduction to the Scaled Agile Framework V4.0”.
As you know, not everything that’s valuable in SAFe can make it to an icon on the Big Picture. One such example is the new Guidance article on Agile Contracts, which we developed as part of 4.0. In the hubbub around the 4.0 release, we didn’t take the time to bring any attention to this new content, so we are doing so now. Working with customers on a more collaborative basis is a key element of.
Hi Folks, We started this new “Highlights” series last month to capture the SAFe news and activities that haven’t been covered in other posts, but would still provide real value to the community. Here’s the latest roundup—a mix of new perspectives, understanding, and practical steps for successful implementation of the Framework. Recorded Webinar: Building Complex Systems with SAFe 4.0 Presented by Alex Yakyma, SAFe Fellow and Principal Consultant, Scaled Agile & Harry Koehnemann, SPCT, Director.
Hi Folks, Richard Knaster has been working on a new whitepaper: “An Introduction to SAFe 4.0.” It distills SAFe down to its primary elements and ideas, with just enough depth to provide a fairly comprehensive understanding of the Framework. He’ll post that for comments and downloads sometime soon in the Updates category of this blog, so stay tuned. This new, “leaner” overview of the Framework has reminded us of the need to emphasize what’s really.
Hi Folks, There is a continuous flow of SAFe information on the net. It comes fast, and in all forms: news, case studies, opinions, articles, videos, and more. We capture what we can on the SAFe blog, so that you can stay up to date. But there is a lot of information there, so we’ve now made it easier for you to find out what’s most important via the the addition of a new “SAFe updates” feature on the Framework homepage,.
