Do I need to have completed a Leading SAFe® class before taking an Implementing SAFe® class?

Do I need to have completed a Leading SAFe® class before taking an Implementing SAFe® class

This is a question that gets frequently asked and is worthy of a quick article to answer not only for now but for future enquires too 😀

In the first instance, let’s look at the Scaled Agile, Inc pre-requisites:

 “All stakeholders in a Lean-Agile transformation are welcome to attend the course, regardless of experience.

However, the following prerequisites are highly recommended for those who intend to take the SAFe® 4 Program Consultant exam and practice as a Certified SAFe® 4 Program Consultant (SPC):

  • 5+ years of experience in software development, testing, business analysis, product, or project management
  • 3+ years of experience in Agile
  • One or more relevant Agile certifications”

So, you can see that Leading SAFe®  is not a pre-requisite to attending an Implementing SAFe® class. In fact, when I took my Implementing SAFe® class I had not previously attended a Leading SAFe® class.

In addition, I tend to find only about a third of Implementing SAFe® class delegates have attended a Leading SAFe® course.

What is more important is that you do have a background and experience in Agile because the Scaled Agile Framework is based on this body of work.

However, there is a BUT!

Great coaching leads to great performance.

I’ve been reflecting on the role of coaches and their influence - both in sport, and at work. Specifically, I’ve been considering the difference between coaching and teaching - something focused on at an Agile Coaching course that I recently attended.

 

As per the course definition, teaching is explaining something to someone. It is the natural reaction that all of us have - someone asks us a question and we give them an answer. Perhaps we go the extra mile, and teach them - “here’s the answer, and here’s how I got to it”. The problem is solved and the knowledge passed on… kind of.
