Experience the Scaled Agile Framework thru the SAFe City Game

In this workshop we will experience key aspects of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe(tm)) like Cost-of-delay based WSJF feature prioritization and the Program Increment planning across an Agile Release Train comprised of several teams using Mark Richard's SAFe City Game. These and similar simulations are some of the highlights of any SAFe training workshop. You will experience them and then be able to go home and run them for your team/group as a learning experience.

  1. Theory on Cost of Delay economic prioritization and the SAFe WSJF approach (Weighted Shortest Job First)
  2. SAFe City Module 1 - Prioritizing Epics/Features using Cost of Delay/WSJF.
