This accredited 3-day SAFe® course helps delegates develop an in-depth knowledge of the roles and responsibilities of a Release Train Engineer within a SAFe® (Scaled Agile Framework) environment. A Release Train Engineer can be described as a servant leader who is essential for managing and coaching an Agile Release Train (ART). An ART is a multiple-disciplinary, long-life team that works with stakeholders to deliver effective solutions, within a PI (Program Increment) timeframe. They are often self-organising and are composed of 50-125 people.
RTEs are responsible for facilitating start to finish value delivery via value streams (a step-by-step solution process) and management of ARTs (Agile Release Trains). This course will also comprehensively cover how to construct an ART. You will also execute a PI (Program Increment).
For organisational success, rapid adaptation to the continually evolving technical and economic environment is required. Failure to keep up can result in lost business or even total failure. However, with a SAFe® RTE certification, you are certain to be able to comfortably manoeuvre your way around any issues that may arise during the development or delivery of software.
Release Train Engineers are crucial in providing effortless coordination of major events and processes. They manage ARTs and operate as servant leaders. This role will help tailor SAFe® to the requirements of enterprise and provide invaluable support and stability for all those involved. Certification for this high-powered leadership role will prepare to take the lead and work in a SAFe organisation.
This is a 3-day fully accredited course that focuses on the responsibilities of a Release Train Engineer in a SAFe® Framework.
