SAFe Scrum XP

( Duration: 2 Days )

The Scaled Agile Framework (or SAFe) is a guide to aligning Agile development throughout an organization. Most organizations focus their Agile development efforts at the team level, first starting with a pilot team and later transitioning individual teams one at a time. Unfortunately, this method fails to fully integrate each team's efforts with the larger stakeholder need. The Scaled Agile Framework gives you proven techniques to align these teams to work at the larger program level, and ultimately how to align multiple programs into a portfolio that maximizes shareholder value.

This SAFe Scrum XP training course goes well beyond Scrum. It teaches Lean thinking tools, roles, processes, and the software engineering practices necessary to achieve the code quality you need to scale Scrum to your enterprise business context. The course is intended for new teams in an enterprise agile adoption program or can be used to re-baseline existing Scrum teams as required for scaling.

By attending SAFe Scrum XP workshop, delegates will learn to:

  • Form their teams (Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and developers/testers) in an enterprise context by understanding the team, program, and enterprise roles; operating under enterprise governance; and applying lean and agile principles
  • Operate within timeboxes to incrementally build and deliver high quality software
  • Continuously improve their team and the program through the application of lean principles and agile practices at scale
  • Build higher quality enterprise software faster through the application of agile software engineering practices
  • Work effectively with Product and Program Management as part of an Agile Release Train to deliver complex enterprise solutions

The SAFe Scrum XP class is ideal:

  • For SAFe Practitioner (SP) Certification – Software developers, testers, Scrum Masters, Product Owners, project managers, product managers, and other practitioners involved in software development
  • For participants of an Agile Release Train Quickstart Program – New agile teams and existing agile teams requiring a common baseline for scaling

COURSE AGENDA

1

Team Structure

  • High performing agile teams, the Scrum Master role, and the Product Owner role. At scale, teams, Scrum Masters, and Product Owners have additional responsibilities and challenges.
2

Building Backlogs

  • Writing user stories and other backlog items, sizing and prioritizing using lean economics via Weighted Shortest Job First, writing acceptance criteria, and building acceptance tests. At scale, team backlogs are part of the enterprise backlog model for integrating with the program and portfolio.
3

Sprint Execution

  • Planning, backlog grooming, tracking, demoing, and continuous improvement. At scale, these include team-level and program-level ceremonies and events.
4

Software Engineer Practices

  • Strategies to avoid "waterfalling" a sprint, TDD, ATTD, automated testing, and continuous integration. At scale, technology and practices must also facilitate distributed development.
5

Launching the Agile Release Training

  • Preparation for the first program-level Release Planning Meeting.
