Lean-Agile Center of Excellence Workshop

There are currently no open class dates for this course, please check back.

The LACE is a small, dedicated team of leaders and change agents who are responsible for driving real and lasting organizational change.

An effective Lean-Agile Center of Excellence (LACE) is a critical success factor differentiating organizations fully committed to adopting Lean-Agile practices and achieving significant business results from those practicing Agile in name only.

The challenge is that most of the people qualified to drive change have full-time responsibilities in their current roles. While a significant portion of their time can perhaps be devoted to supporting the change, a smaller, more dedicated group of people is needed to drive SAFe® adoption throughout the organization.

  • Create the mission statement and charter for the LACE
  • Understand and learn how to carry out the responsibilities of the LACE
  • Determine the organizational model for the LACE (centralized, decentralized, or hub-and-spoke)
