REMOTE DELIVERY - SAFe DevOps with Practitioner Certification (SDP) - ReadingBoston - December REMOTE DELIVERY - SAFe DevOps with Practitioner Certification (SDP) - Reading/Boston - December


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 SAFe® DevOps 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.

Attendees will leave with the knowledge they need to support and enable a successful DevOps initiative at scale. The course also prepares attendees for the SAFe® DevOps Practitioner (SDP) certification exam.

Attending the class prepares individuals to take the exam and become a certified SAFe® DevOps Practitioner (SDP)

The cultural change included getting agreement between the Business Unit President, CIO, CFO, and the head of Product Development on a common strategy for deploying Agile. Bob was also an organization-wide catalyst at Fidelity, helping to broaden the deployment of Agile across the larger organization.
