SAFe DevOps

Optimizing Your Value Stream with Certified SAFe® DevOps Practitioner


2 Days


To compete in a disruptive global market, every organization needs to deliver valuable technology solutions at the speed of business. This requires a shared DevOps mindset among all the people needed to define, build, test, deploy, and release software-driven systems—not just the engineers operating a CI/CD pipeline.

The two-day, interactive course helps people across technical, non-technical, and leadership roles work together to optimize their value stream from end to end. Attendees will learn what DevOps is, why it is important to every role, and design a continuous delivery pipeline that is tailored to their business. Attendees work in cross-functional teams to map their current state value stream from concept to cash, identify major bottlenecks to flow, and build an actionable implementation plan that will accelerate the benefits of DevOps in their organization.

After attending the class, attendees should be able to:

  • Explain how DevOps enables strategic business objectives
  • Apply a CALMR approach to DevOps to avoid automating broken processes

  • Use value stream mapping to measure flow and identify bottlenecks in the end-to-end delivery process
