Applied SAFe® Engineering

This 3-days-course teaches the key concepts for effective process engineering with Applied SAFe on the Stages platform. You will learn how to integrate, adjust and extend Applied SAFe based on concepts like workspace hierarchies, effective use of process types for a number of deployment strategies, inheritance mechanisms for process elements, branching and merging with overlays, manual and automated tailoring and process model extensions with your existing and new process assets. Understand design principles like work product and process modelling and learn how to define and apply process templates to ensure a consistent design. Understand the mechanisms for effective bindings to reference models like Automotive SPICE, CMMI or any other ISO, IEC or DIN standard.
