SAFe® DevOps

The SAFe DevOps course provides a comprehensive overview for understanding the DevOps competencies needed to accelerate time-to-market by improving the flow of value through the Continuous Delivery Pipeline. During the course, you will map your current value stream through the delivery pipeline from idea to cash and identify practices that will eliminate bottlenecks. After the course, you will have the tools needed to execute an implementation plan for improving your delivery pipeline.


Course description

During the course we will build an understanding of the complete flow of value in the Continuous Delivery Pipeline: from Continuous Exploration to Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, and Release on Demand. We will explore SAFe’s CALMR (Culture, Automation, Lean, Measure, Recover) approach to DevOps, which helps create a culture of shared responsibility for the full spectrum of Solution delivery. It helps align people, processes, and technology throughout the organization to achieve faster time-to-market.

The course gives an overview of the DevOps-competencies needed. ´Teaching the use of specific software tools and technologies related to continuous delivery is not in scope.

After the course you will have the tools you need to execute an implementation plan for improving your delivery pipeline, and the knowledge you need to support the plan. The course also prepares you for the optional SAFe® 4 DevOps Practitioner (SDP) certification exam.
