What is the value of SAFe certification training? In terms of monetary and non-monetary benefits, does it really help people's career? Agile methodologies such as SAFe are among the most promising and useful methodologies available.
Organizations are in the midst of profound transformation due to Digital disruption. Whether the teams are reactive or proactive, optimistic or pessimistic, they view the continuous change brought about by Digital Transformation as Continuous Disruption or Continuous Next.
“The human mind wants certainty everywhere. But that’s far from what we have in reality. Markets are harsh and dynamic. Customer needs are continuously evolving. Navigating through all of these challenges and truly understand the unarticulated needs of the customers is the essence of design thinking,” says Anand Murthy Raj, Associate Partner and SPCT at Gladwell Academy.
Availability of a Product Owner is the key ingredient of product development, irrespective of whether there’s a crisis or not, says SriKrishna Joshi when talking about the challenges in product management during the pandemic.
We are strengthening our leadership team with SPCT and SAFe Fellow Michael Stump, who will now oversee our operations as COO. Because innovative companies from all industries are increasingly using the Scaled Agile Framework, Gladwell Academy is seeing substantial growth in all domains, including operations. We had a conversation with Mr. Stump about how he intends to facilitate that growth with us.
Have you heard about the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and how it can bring both Agile and Lean ways of working to large organizations? Maybe your organization has decided to adopt SAFe but you don’t know where to begin? The Leading SAFe course answers all your questions as you begin your SAFe journey and earn your SAFe Agilist certification.
For Gladwell Academy trainer Sathyanarayana HR, spreading the awareness and adoption of SAFe has been his bread and butter for many years. Last month of October, he dived one important level deeper, becoming the second Indian person to join the select community of SAFe Program Consultant Trainers.
If you thought Business Agility was a new-fangled concept, you’re in for something yet. Anand Murthy Raj says he will apply not just Business Agility as a curating concept, but also Emotional Agility – and he takes time to explain just what the latter entails.
Ever since social distancing made impact, we have been hard at work making all of our courses and trainings compatible with remote learning. Through hard work and expertise, trainers like SPCT Anand Murthy Raj have made remote SPC training effective, informative, and enjoyable leaving participants ready to begin their SAFe Program Consultant journey.
Gladwell Academy recently held one of its Agile Coach Bootcamp (ICP – ACC): a three-day course meant to give you the knowledge you need to get started as an Agile Coach. We sat down with two participants, Geert-Jan van Vliet of Dutch Railways (NS) and Robert Agterberg from Vivat, to get their thoughts on the course.
At Gladwell Academy we are moving forward with our Agile Coach courses, adapting them to be offered remotely. According to Agile Coach Trainer Renate Cremer “crises like this are exactly when Agile Coaches are needed most,” and she has already begun to consider how this period of isolation will change the way we work and teach Agile.
Maaike Klasen and Renate Cremer are both experienced Agilists. Maaike is an experienced Scrum Master with extensive coaching capabilities who is involved with the International Coaching Federation, as well as working with Scrum.org; Renate Cremer, on the other hand, an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) at Gladwell Academy who also put together the 12-day in-depth Agile Coach course. Together, they’re going to explore the Agile Coaching discipline.
SAFe for Architects is a relatively new training in the Scaled Agile curriculum. What value does it add and why is it important? A seasoned architect himself, Frank Langeveld is also a SAFe trainer at Gladwell Academy. He shares his insights and experience with organizational architecture.
Most trainers will agree that group activity is invaluable for the learning experience. But doesn’t a remote setting make such interactive moments all but impossible? Our trainers at Gladwell Academy would disagree: not only is group activity possible…it’s everywhere!
Suddenly both trainers and participants find themselves unable to travel or even stuck at home entirely. Luckily, we’ve come prepared: we’re thrilled to introduce Gladwell Academy’s Remote Classrooms! With adapted content and pacing to allow digital delivery of our courses in SAFe in Agile Scrum and Kanban and in information management, your professional learning journey is continues fully adapted to digital interaction!
Gladwell Academy SAFe Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT) Anand Murthy Raj will present this year at the European SAFe Summit on June 10…. remotely! Here is an exclusive first look into the topics and ideas he plans to discuss.
