Explore the core concepts of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). Learn about the types of problems SAFe can solve, the four levels of the SAFe diagram, how to determine whether or not your organization should implement SAFe, and more.
- If you're a large enterprise with a few Agile teams, then at some point, someone will mention the Scaled Agile Framework. The Scaled Agile Framework, or SAF, will help you scale up Agile so that your teams can work on larger enterprise-level products. Agile teams will typically have five to seven people. An enterprise-level product might have hundreds of developers working in many different parts of your organization. This level of coordination requires a whole new set of Agile roles and practices.
In this course, you'll see how SAF breaks down your enterprise into four different layers. Each of these layers will work with different groups in your organization. You'll get to see how enterprise stakeholders map their high level value to Agile Release Trains. Then you'll see how to coordinate these trains with Release Train Engineers. Finally, you'll see how your Agile teams will work with these engineers to add work to each train stop. This course is for any organization with more than a few Agile teams.
Even smaller organizations can see some of the newest ideas in Agile software development. So, let's hop on board our Agile Release Trains and start scaling with SAF.
