Our Experts in Lean-Agile Transformations

ICON is proud to have the highest number of individuals who have demonstrated superior competency, initiative, and in-depth field experience in SAFe. These SAFe Program Consultant Trainers (SPCTs) and SAFe Fellows are leaders in Business Agility Transformations around the globe. They bring their real-world experiences to your engagement, imparting their knowledge to lead and inspire your Lean-Agile Change Agents.

"As is the case with any certification, you should carefully evaluate SAFe instructors and consultants, and make sure that they have demonstrated experience that is relevant to the role you are asking them to take on. Do not rely on certifications alone as a measure of the skills of a consultant or prospective employee. A notable exception to this is the SAFe Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT) certification, which does require demonstrated experience with agile, software development or product management, training and consulting. 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. However, SPCTs are in short supply. As of February 2020, there are fewer than 100 people worldwide holding this certification."
