Through Leffingwell, LLC., we provide enterprise Lean|Agile transformation consulting and training services. This work is based on our experiences in the enterprise, the content of my various books and, of course, the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). My service delivery partners Drew Jemilo, Colin O’Neill, Alex Yakyma, and Armond Mehrabian have each helped me help a number of larger enterprises achieve success with SAFe. In addition, we have certified a number of consultants (“SPC” Scaled Agile Framework Program Consultants) that can also do the job effectively.
Scaled Agile Framework Training and Certifications
We are now offering Scaled Agile Framework Program Consultant Certifications (SPC) , an intensive four-day immersion in the framework, including strategies for implementation and the courseware and artifacts you need to facilitate success.

Setting the Stage: Lean|Agile Leadership Workshop
The two-day Leading the Lean|Agile Enterprise workshop is intended for executives, managers, and team leads considering or implementing a Lean|Agile transformation, as well as for those leaders of any software organization needing a step-change improvement in software development productivity and quality. The interactive, experiential-based workshop includes tutorial and hands-on exercises, with ample opportunities for discussion of your company’s current software development challenges. Since your enterprise will ultimately be no more lean or agile than your executives thinking, this course is often the right place to start.

Agile Release Train Program QuickStart
The fastest way to get your product, service, or application value streams delivering the benefits of Agile at scale is via a five-day quickstart program:
- Train 50-100 team members ( 8-12 newly formed Scrum teams), in the principles of Lean and Agile, and the implementation of Scrum in the enterprise context
- Align teams to a common mission and plan the first release or potentially shippable increment (8-12 weeks). Establish iteration plans and measurable PSI objectives
- Introduce prospective Product Owners and ScrumMasters to the principles and practices unique to their new role

Enterprise Agility Assessments and Recommendations
For companies who are ready for agile’s benefits, or who have already rolled out agility in some or all of the enterprise, we’ll also do an assessment to help establish the next steps. Learn more about Enterprise Agility Assessments with Recommendations.
Scrum+ for Enterprise Teams
Scrum is a lightweight and effective framework for team level agility. Our two-day Scrum for Enterprise Teams workshop provides an introduction and practical experience with the Scrum team framework. And, since our enterprises operate at scale, our delivery model must operate at scale, so we often deliver this class for 50-100 practitioners at the same time (5-15 teams). All the teams learn Scrum, build their backlog, write user stories and acceptance criteria and learn the basic disciplines, roles, meetings and cadence of the Scrum framework at the same time. Equally importantly, this class starts to build the relationships and trust that provide the foundation for the “ Ba ” of a dynamic, knowledge-acquiring Agile program.
