Course Overview

The LACE is a small, dedicated team of leaders and change agents who are responsible for driving real and lasting organisational change.

An effective Lean-Agile Center of Excellence (LACE) is a critical success factor differentiating organisations fully committed to adopting Lean-Agile practices and achieving significant business results from those practicing Agile in name only.

The challenge is that most of the people qualified to drive change have full-time responsibilities in their current roles. While a significant portion of their time can perhaps be devoted to supporting the change, a smaller, more dedicated group of people is needed to drive SAFe® adoption throughout the organisation.

Course Content

During this one–day workshop, you will explore proven SAFe adoption patterns (as well as common pitfalls) and how they apply to your context, in order to:

  • Create the mission statement and charter for the LACE
  • Understand and learn how to carry out the responsibilities of the LACE
  • Determine the organisational model for the LACE (centralised, decentralised or hub-and-spoke)
  • Set up the LACE as an Agile team
  • Build your initial SAFe Implementation Roadmap
  • Learn how to prepare to launch your first Agile Release Train (ART)
