Organizational transformation takes a deep level of skill, commitment, and determination to get everybody on board and collaborating toward a common vision. Determination alone will only get you so far. The proven path to a successful SAFe implementation is through enabling a sufficient and powerful guiding coalition of SAFe Program Consultants (SPCs); professional Lean-Agile change agents authorized to train and certify the other key roles that help drive the implementation. SPCs are critical players in a Lean-Agile enterprise, and their performance and knowledge of SAFe is essential when it comes to producing optimal results for the business.

SPC-exclusive toolkits and videos make the difference

SPC certification opens up an invaluable collection of tools, videos, workbooks, and templates; all designed by field experts to prepare you for success as a key driver of enterprise transformation. Here’s what you can look forward to when you login to your SPC member account:

SAFe Implementation Roadmap Toolkit

The critical moves needed for adopting SAFe within an enterprise
