New LiveLessons video training available for Leading SAFe 4.5

Community News SAFe Resources

We’re always looking for ways to use online venues to complement our world-class, instructor-led training. The most recent is my LiveLessons video tutorial on the 4.5 version of Scaled Agile’s most popular course, Leading SAFe. The tutorial is being provided through Pearson’s InformIT and InformIT resellers. In this nine-hour course, I provide an in-depth exploration of version 4.5 of the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) and how to lead a Lean-Agile transformation at enterprise scale.

The 4.5 version of Leading SAFe Live Lessons is not a minor update. It is an entirely new video that captures the latest advances and innovations of the Framework. From the SAFe Implementation Roadmap to the new Scalable DevOps and Continuous Delivery Pipeline, there’s a wealth of content for enterprises looking to gain the latest business benefits that can be achieved through SAFe. More details on the learning objectives and for each of the nine lessons is available on the InformIT course page.

The LiveLessons video format is designed for busy professionals as it allows them to watch the entire video or navigate directly to the content of choice, resulting in a customizable, self-paced, learning environment. It bridges the gap for people who may not be able to initially attend the 2-day Leading SAFe certification course, but still need to gain the knowledge necessary to start or continue their Lean-Agile transformation. And for enterprises looking for consistent results as they introduce employees to the SAFe way of working, this video is an ideal addition to their training catalog.

Please forward the InformIT link to any of your colleagues who may benefit from this updated training. And remember to use the code ‘SCALEDAGILE’ when registering to get 40% off the list price.

Stay SAFe

– Dean

    This is a fantastic video, thanks for taking the time. Others – these are part of safaribooksonline subscription, in case you need to make a case for cost, then you get a ton of other learnings as well.

    Does this purchase qualify for taking the Safe Agilist exam?

    I have purchased SAFe 4.0 Live lessons quite recently. Is there a way to upgrade to 4.5 Live lessons?

      There is not an ‘upgrade’ price for people who bought Leading SAFe 4.0 version and are wanting to buy the 4.5 video. The 4.5 video is an entirely new production that fully captures new new Framework; it is not an update patch.

    Hi Dean

    I want to introduce this video as a getting ready for SAFe initiative in my space. Would like to understand more about its operating model. Let us say I encourage one of my resource manager to buy one, can his team of developers view as well. Also can they take SAFe agilest examination after that. Thank you!

      Hi Ram,
      As noted, this video training does not allow one to stand for the SA Exam.
      Here is Pearson’s response to your other question:

      “Purchases on InformIT are meant for individuals. If they have teams and need to buy access codes in bulk, we should direct them to Pearson’s representative Linda Bennani ( She can handle bulk orders, which are currently at 65% off. “

    Does the video course alone enable you to take the certification exam, or is an in-person course still required for certification?
