SAFe® for Architects Certification

The course is designed to provide Architects with the skills needed to lead Lean and Agile transformation within an organization at the Team, Program, and Portfolio levels. 

The training program equips Architects, pivotal roles at the intersection of strategy and execution, with the tools and techniques necessary to support the development, deployment, and evolution of valuable solutions in response to business needs. Course attendees will learn techniques to integrate architecture and development across the various stages of the Agile solution lifecycle, coordinating activities between different teams and organizational levels while making decisions that also meet non-functional requirements. 

By passing the final exam, participants will have gained all the essential knowledge to be key players in corporate transformation in a SAFe context.
