Frequently asked questions

  • Should I consider SAFe certification?Open or Close

    The Scaled Agile Framework is a brilliant and detailed framework referred to when Agile is used in larger organisations. SAFe is a useful framework to understand since it adds a few additional roles and ceremonies to KANBAN and SCRUM forming a framework that can scale for large teams and organisations. If you are looking for answers to scaling an Agile implementation or Agile for larger cross-functional teams then SAFe is a good course to consider.

    The SCRUM framework also has many scaling options for instance by introducing SCRUM or SCRUM ceremonies or looking into due track SCRUM.

  • Does the course cover Lean?Open or Close

    The core idea of Lean is to maximise customer value while minimising waste. All Agile Frameworks (including SCRUM and KANBAN) are based on the Lean principle with regards to value-driven focus and reducing any waste. In fact, Lean is more focused on the mindset and thinking which overlaps brilliantly with regards to any Agile framework as both are based on the same principles and values.
