Are you implementing SAFe practices in your organization or do you just want to gain some knowledge about the framework? If the answer is yes, then this SAFe with LEGO simulation is definitely for you.
The simulation is based on the SAFe method (Scaled Agile Framework), which is a framework for collaborative product development in large organizations.
We build a vision for a product and several teams plan, coordinate and build a large coherent Lego product, using the principles and techniques from SAFe.
We will play with LEGO and have fun, but you also get valuable insight into how scaled agile development can take place and an introduction to how SAFe works with scaled product development.
