How do you implement SAFe in a pragmatic way? AgileSparks has years of a variety of agile scaling experiences – Since 2008 We’ve been helping organizations such Intel, Siemens, HP, Philips achieve agility at scale.
In our Implementing SAFe 4.5 workshops Yuval Yeret, our SPCT, shares his experience to help bring to life SAFe’s principles, roles, events, artifacts.

Implementing SAFe is the premier SAFe workshop. It provides the deepest insights into the intricacies of the SAFe framework and how to implement it. It is the path to getting certified as a SAFe Program Consultant (SPC). SPCs can deliver formal SAFe training classes and have access to all the SAFe power toolkits.
Introducing the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)
All stakeholders in a Lean-Agile transformation are welcome to attend the course, regardless of experience. However, the following prerequisites are highly recommended for those who intend to take the SAFe® 4 Program Consultant certification exam and practice as a SAFe® 4 Program Consultant (SPC):
Q: I’ve taken the Leading SAFe class and am already a SAFe Agilist. Looks like the first two days of class are a repeat of Leading SAFe. Can I just join the last two Implementing days?
A: This is an SAI policy. Implementing SAFe is a 4 days class that needs to be attended in full regardless of any previous SAFe class participation/experience/certification. The Leading SAFe section of the Implementing SAFe class is delivered in a deeper more train-the-trainer oriented fashion than in a regular Leading SAFe class. Participants who’ve taken Leading SAFe before report that going through the class again is immensely helpful to getting a deeper understanding and fresh perspective that is helping them become better SPCs, especially if they intend to teach SAFe classes.
Q: Does the price include the certification?
A: Workshop price includes participation in a certification exam that you’ll take in the 30 days after the workshop. If you pass the exam you will earn your SPC certification. If you need a retake there’s an extra fee handled directly with SAI – the SAFe certification body.
Q: When do we finish on the last day of class?
A: Most classes finish on 3pm on the last day to enable reasonable travel schedules for remote participants especially as it’s typically on a Friday after a long training week. The core SPC curriculum is typically delivered by lunchtime that day, followed by an Open Space / Lean Coffee style discussion of parking lot topics as well as practice exams/quizzes.
