Architecting for continuous value flow with SAFe®.

The SAFe® for Architects course equips systems, solution, and enterprise architects to engage across the organization as effective leaders and change agents who collaboratively deliver architecture solutions.

During this three-day course, participants will learn the roles, responsibilities, and mindset of Agile Architects. They will learn how to align architecture with the business value and drive continuous flow to large systems-of-systems while supporting SAFe program execution.

This course is designed for senior technical staff who need to understand the role of system, solution, and enterprise architects in Lean-Agile organizations. The course is also appropriate for individuals who want to gain deeper insight into how architecture enables continuous value flow and how architects engage and contribute to a Lean-Agile enterprise.

You will be equipped with the knowledge needed to improve collaboration and alignment in a SAFe® Lean-Agile organization.

We offer this course as an online course or presential course option.
