Talk to us about the SAFe DevOps Course

SAFe DevOps (SAFe SDP)

Improve Time-to-Market with the SAFe® 4 DevOps Practitioner Certification based on version 4.6 of SAFe®
Take the SAFe DevOps course from Grow-Lean, your authorized Scaled Agile Partner

In this two-day course you gain a comprehensive overview of DevOps competencies needed to accelerate time-to-market by improving the flow of value through the Continuous Delivery Pipeline. You will map the current value stream through the delivery pipeline from idea to cash, and identify practices that will eliminate bottlenecks to flow.

The course will build an understanding of the complete flow of value from Continuous Exploration to Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, and Release on Demand. You will explore SAFe’s CALMR (Culture, Automation, Lean, Measure, Recover) approach to DevOps, which helps create a culture of shared responsibility for the full spectrum of Solution delivery. It helps align people, processes, and technology throughout the organization to achieve faster time-to-market.

You will leave with the tools they need to execute an implementation plan for improving the delivery pipeline, and the knowledge to support the plan. The course also prepares you for the optional SAFe® 4 DevOps Practitioner (SDP) certification exam.
