An exclusive SAFe Course for government agencies
The private sector has benefited from SAFe tools for a long time. Lately, government agencies have also realized that they can build systems to serve people more efficiently by adopting Lean-Agile principles. However, the adoption of Lean-Agile best practices presents an altogether different set of challenges in the public sector context.
There are many complex issues in government programs such as legacy governance, organizational barrier, multi-vendor environments, etc. which make the transition challenging. SAFe version 4.6 includes special consideration for the government in the “SAFe for Government training” program.
This training program is focused on how to lay the foundation of Lean-Agile values, principles, and practices for government programs. The training helps strengthen the process and technical capabilities, which allow entities to create the systems or software that deliver government programs.
In this two-day training program, attendees will learn:
Learning a new way of thinking about project management. I really liked day 2 when we were able to apply learning.
Student guide is easy to understand. Instructor was very knowledgeable and was able to provide simple understandable case scenarios to assist me with understanding / learning process.
I liked the format and how the instructor was able to set the pace based on our group. WSJF exercise was helpful.
I liked the content of the SAFe course, terminologies and the way it was presented. The case study helped in understanding the whole picture of SAFe. Would have preferred more examples on some of the concepts and some more detailed case study.
I liked that the instructor. Plenty of detailed examples to support key concepts. He also encouraged questions and discussions which helped reinforce learning.
I liked the hands-on portions of the training.(Games and case study). Add more hands-on portions and slides, although information can be monotonous
Gourab was well informed and kept the focus on getting us to what we want. A comprehensive understanding rather than teaching to the test.
Very interactive, instructor open to discussion of new ideas and adaption to our needs. Up-front investment of instructor (before class) in specific needs of company would have been helpful.
