At the end of January we held a Partner Training session here at the PEDCO headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland. We had Partners from all around Europe attend a 3-day training session which was all about becoming a Quality Manager using Applied SAFe.

The Applied SAFe® Quality Management course is a 2-days-course where you will gain the knowledge needed to lead the integration, adoption, and extension of Applied SAFe within your company. You will learn how to structure your workspace hierarchy, and your process model to be able to define different implementation strategies as supported by Applied SAFe.

On the final day, we had a great workshop session discussing the most frequently asked questions and challenges people may face in regards to Applied SAFe and we had a big brainstorming session on how to answer these questions and overcome these challenges.


Who Attended?

One of the partners that attended was Safe Journey. They believe in a holistic approach to agile transformations. Whether you are a large organisation that needs help with your agile transformation or you’re in one of the numerous roles affected by an agile transformation and need to understand how you can find your feet in the agile world, Safe Journey is ready to support you on your agile journey.

Our second partner that attended was Yellow Intelligent. They believe that change is essential and intrinsic motivations such as Purpose, Mastery, and Autonomy are important. Not only is Yellow Intelligent performing Agile Transitions, Agile projects, and coaching but they also provide training in the field of Agile for ScrumMasters, Product Owners, and more.

Lastly, we had GlobalLogic attend the session. Now, in an increasingly digital world that places the consumer at the center of every interaction, GlobalLogic is showing businesses how they can connect the dots back to consumers, innovate within predictable budgets, and bring the next generation of digital products and services to market.

We all had a great time talking, laughing, eating, and brainstorming about Applied SAFe, being agile and about our partnership.

PEDCO’s Applied SAFe Partners are companies that believe in agility at scale to successfully transform organizations towards a Lean-Agile culture. They have developed significant expertise in supporting large enterprises including companies within regulated environments through every phase of a Lean-Agile transformation.

We would like to welcome the new Quality Managers of Applied SAFe:

We will have Partner training’s like this on a regular basis, the next Partner-event will be at the end of March/April 2019 in Zurich again, with some skiing on the weekend. This will be announced in our blog about Partner training, just like we did it this last time around. Stay tuned!
