Transitioning to Lean-Agile practices for building technology-based capabilities is especially challenging in the government context. But issues of legacy governance, contracting, and organizational barriers can be overcome with the right information and strategies. During this two-day course, attendees will learn the principles and practices of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®), how to execute and release value through Agile Release Trains, and what it means to lead a Lean-Agile transformation of a program inside a government agency.

Attendees will gain an understanding of the Lean-Agile mindset and why it’s an essential foundation for transformation. They’ll also get practical advice on building high-performing, multi-vendor Agile teams and programs, managing technology investments in Lean flow, acquiring solutions with Agile contracting, launching the program, and planning and delivering value using SAFe®. Attendees will also learn how specific leadership behaviors can drive successful organizational change, even in government. 

  • How to apply Lean, Agile, and DevOps principles and practices in traditional government organizations and cultures.
  • How to adapt technology strategy, budgeting and forecasting, acquisition, compliance, and governance practices to flow-based practices using emerging government guidelines.
  • How to organize government programs into ARTs and execute in program increments (PIs), even in remote environments with distributed teams.
  • How to build an action plan to begin or accelerate a SAFe implementation in your program or agency.

  • What are specific leadership behaviors that can drive successful organizational change in government?
  • How do I build high-performing, multi-vendor teams and Agile Release Trains (ARTs)?
  • How do I manage contracts and acquisition/procurement using Agile principles and practices?
  • How can I coordinate Agile at scale in a government and multi-vendor environment?

This course is designed for government leaders and influencers who can guide the decision to adopt SAFe® within their agency or program.

Examples include:

  • Executives, Directors, Branch Chiefs
  • Managers of development, engineering, QA, architecture, operations, support
  • Program and Project Managers
  • Program/Project Management Office (PMO)

All are welcome to attend the course, regardless of experience.

However, meeting the following prerequisites will make the training more productive.

  • A foundational understanding of the Agile Manifesto, SAFe® House of Lean, and SAFe® Principles is required using pre-work suggestions
  • A foundational understanding of the full lifecycle of government technology programs is helpful
  • Registered attendees will receive a list of readings and videos specific to Agile in government that will be beneficial to review before the course
