Course overview

This course helps architects of all levels and disciplines support and enable continuous value flow in the Lean Enterprise. Through this highly interactive, scenario-based learning experience, you’ll explore your role in SAFe, identify key partners, customers, and collaborators in the organization, practice making architectural decisions based on economic trade-offs, and experience guiding architectural concepts through the entire value stream using Lean-Agile techniques.


Attendees can improve collaboration and alignment in a SAFe Lean-Agile enterprise when they become a SAFe 5 Architect. The SAFe for Architects course prepares System, Solution, and Enterprise Architects to engage across the organization as effective leaders and change agents who collaboratively deliver architectural solutions. During this three-day course, attendees will explore the roles, responsibilities, and mindset of Agile Architects, and appreciate how to align architecture with business value and drive continuous flow to large systems of systems while supporting SAFe program execution.
