Acceptance Test-Driven Development for Trains/Teams Doing SAFe®

Course Tabs

Course Overview

This workshop includes what teams new to Scrum and SAFe need integrated with Acceptance Test-Driven Development.  If you just want Acceptance Test-Driven Development for your SAFe teams, you should take our Effective Agile Requirements: Acceptance Test-Driven Development with Behavior-Driven Development. True North Consortium Accreditation is provided since this course is not affiliated with Scaled Agile Inc. 

Based on a robust operating model

This course is based on Scrum/ATDD, which is an operating model that incorporates Scrum. This prepares people to adopt Scrum to their environment.  It is also useful for training SAFe® ARTs since it both accommodates large class sized and integrates Agile Product Management which SAFe for Teams does not cover to such a deep extent. If needed, the course can be taught using SAFe and/or customer-specific terminology. 

Supporting materials for new Scrum Teams

After training, you should not have to choose between going  it alone or paying for embedded coaches. By properly preparing you during the workshop and providing needed support materials many of the challenges faced by teams with standard Scrum training can be avoided.

Workshop attendees have access to a collection of templates, online videos, and discussion boards to ask questions of experts and the community.
