Our SPCT Team
The SAFe Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT) certification recognizes individuals who demonstrate superior knowledge, competency, and in-depth field experience in adopting Agile across an enterprise with SAFe. SPCTs are often the leading change agents in an organization's Lean-Agile transformation and implementation. They also have a proven track record as expert trainers and are the only ones authorized to train aspiring SAFe Program Consultants (SPCs). There are fewer than 75 SPCTs worldwide. According to Gartner: "If you're hiring someone who has [an] SPCT certification, you can be confident that they do have experience in these areas, as well as experience with SAFe implementation at multiple organizations."
Two of our SPCTs are also SAFe Fellows, an even rarer recognition of mastery and thought leadership within the SAFe Community.
The SPC certification recognizes change agents who combine their technical knowledge of SAFe with an intrinsic motivation to improve the company’s software and systems development processes. They play a critical role in successfully implementing SAFe. SPCs come from numerous internal and external roles, including business and technology leaders, portfolio/program/project managers, and more. ICON SPCs have a minimum 10 years of Agile and SAFe experience and are carefully selected based on their superb interpersonal skills and desire to continuously learn and improve.
