SAFe® ScrumXP

Prepare for the adoption of SAFe® at the Portfolio Level

In this two-day course, attendees will gain the knowledge necessary to organise around value for optimal business results, aligning strategy and execution by implementing lean-agile program portfolio management, governance and budgeting.

You will also learn how to use and implement the Portfolio Kanban system to accelerate value flow to programs.

The course is an important early step in helping you successfully achieve a top-down Agile transformation. Adjust to a framework of investing in initiatives rather than projects, of flowing work through teams, and of steering work rather than resources.


This course is intended for senior executives and solution managers, Line of Business Owners, CTO, Product/Program Directors, Lean-Agile Leaders, Agile PMO and Agile Change Agents.

SAFe Hos Dig?

While we do run public classes on a regular basis, we find the most effective learning experience is in an internal, private setting. That way, we can spend more time relating the material to your own context and exploring “How would this work for us“.
