Enhance collaboration and adoption to a SAFe® Lean-Agile company by becoming a SAFE 6 architect!

Gain deeper understanding about how architecture enables a continuous value flow and how architects actively participate and contribute in a Lean-Agile workflow.

SAFe® for Architects prepares system-, solution- and enterprise architects to actively participate in an organization as change drivers that collaboratively deliver architecture solutions.

In this 3-day course you will explore the role, responsibilities, and concerns of an agile architect. You will learn how to shape architecture based on business value and create continuous flow in large scale IT ecosystems, while following the SAFe framework.

What is SAFe®?

Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) will help you and your company with the challenges around developing and releasing products and systems in a bigger scale and with shorter lead time than using the traditional waterfall method.

You will be able to synchronize and adapt the deliverables for several teams at the same time. As SAFe is configurable and scalable you can select the level of implementation based on your business size and needs. SAFe supports everything from a delivery organization with 50-125 users to large scale corporations, handling complex system solutions with thousands of people involved.

In SAFe you will find the roles, responsibilities, artefacts, and events that are necessary to execute an upscaled Lean-Agile product delivery.

Improved result of system development

SAFe way of working is well established and has evolved through practice and refinement to achieve a comprehensive way to develop complex systems and software in a Lean-Agile way. The foundation of the framework has three primary sources of knowledge: Agile development, System thinking and Lean product development.

You will find guidance using SAFe for these kinds of questions:

  • How can we as a company reach our technical and business goals?
  • How can we improve our economical result through better decisions?
  • How can we continuously deliver customer value through our organization by letting them plan and execute?
  • How do we improve our customer’s satisfaction by improving the quality of our solution?
  • How will we implement the Lean-Agile Way-of-Working throughout our whole organization, from business units to the single team, to improve the customer value we deliver?
  • How can Value Streams help us deliver in a structured and efficient way without the delays that normally occurs in organizations burdened by bureaucracy and strict hierarchy?
  • How can we minimize and handle dependencies between teams, programs, and Value Streams?
  • How do we create a culture that promotes collaboration, innovation, and relentless improvement?
  • How can we keep people motivated in what they are doing?
  • What changes do we need to do to promote risk taking, tolerate failures, and encourage lessons learned?
  • How can encourage the teams to enforce continuous improvement?
  • How do we know what our agile teams are up to? Can we measure their efficiency?

By implementing SAFe and utilize its set of values, principles and practices, you can handle questions like these above and reach great benefit for the company, the teams and for you as well!
