Leading SAFe® Training Course (SA)

Leading SAFe® is a two day course leading to the SAFe Agilist (SA) certification. The course gives a detailed description of SAFe® and how to use it in a large organisation.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Apply SAFe to scale Lean and Agile development
  • Recognize and apply a Lean-Agile Mindset and principles
  • Continuously explore, integrate, deploy, and release value
  • Empower with a Lean Portfolio
  • Coordinate the development of large solution
  • Enhance their Lean-Agile leadership skills
  • Support a Lean-Agile transformation in their enterprise


Based on version 4.5 of SAFe



The Leading SAFe course was not only extremely useful (in terms of content) but also delivered to a very high standard by Nick McKenna. Nick’s Software Engineering, and Agile implementation, credentials are equally as impressive as his training style. Highly recommended.

Paul Yeomans – Managing Director, Manifestly Important

Nick is a well informed and interesting speaker and we gained as much, if not more, from his additional stories and talking to him than the course content itself.

Tim Fellows – Director of Development, HBM-nCode
