SAFe® For Teams With SP® Certification

Duration : 2 Days

SAFe® for Teams teaches teams who are part of an Agile Release Train (ART) how to work in an Agile environment using Scrum, Kanban and XP. The course includes Scrum principles as well as Lean thinking tools, roles and processes. Excelerus uses lectures, experiential activities, and exercises to demonstrate how to begin building actual team backlogs in preparation for the agile transformation.

Agile teams learn about their ART and their roles in it, planning, executing and improving with other teams. This class prepares teams to run a Program Increment (PI) including all meetings at the Team and Program level with specific focus on the upcoming PI planning.
