Opportunities for Project Managers in the Lean Enterprise with SAFe®

Traditional project management thinking and practices were not designed to deal with the level of uncertainty and disruptive speed of change organizations are faced with today. To survive and thrive in today’s digital age, enterprises must figure out how to deliver high-quality solutions with the best value, in the shortest sustainable lead time.

Achieving this goal requires Project Managers to adopt a Lean and Agile approach to support their organizations during this shift. As a result, the opportunities for Project Managers in the midst of this disruption have never been greater.

The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) is the leading framework for scaling Lean and Agile for enterprise-wide success. Join SAFe Fellow Richard Knaster who will discuss the following:
