-What is SA - Certified SAFe Agilist Certification?

Certified SAFe Agilist - SA Certification is...

Certified SAFe Agilist, abbreviated as SA, is the agile certification awarded by Scaled Agile. People who have attended a two-day Leading SAFe course instructed by a Scaled Agile SPC and passed Certified SAFe Agilist exam, achieving certification, demonstrate a fundamental level of Agile mastery.

Certified SAFe Agilist certificate holders prove that they understand Agile as described in the Scaled Agile Guidelines and how to apply Lean and SAFe principles. Certified SAFe Agilist certification holders have a consistent terminology and approach to Scaled Agile Framework.

In the waterfall project management, requirements are gathered, scope documents are generated, approval of the customer is acquired, the project team starts to work on the project and after months of progress, the customer could see the outcomes of the project.

However, harsh competition in the market and especially shorter product lifecycles make waterfall project management methodologies impossible to adapt. Because, when an organization is developing a product or a new feature for an existing product, its rival might come out with a new product and the organization must adapt itself with these changing requirements rapidly which is not easy in waterfall project management methodologies.

In Agile Project Management, the product is evolved with small increments and new features added step-by-step throughout the project. This enables the customer to see the developing product and make alterations in the requirements earlier when needed.

Therefore the objective of lean project management is to produce higher-value while reducing any kind of waste. Lean manufacturing principles were developed for improving the production processes of Toyota in the 1950s. The Project Management Institute expresses as: “To be Lean is to provide what is needed, when it is needed, with the minimum amount of materials, equipment, labor, and space.”

The main purpose of Lean Project Management is to reduce the working space, working hours, investment prices, and maintenance costs. As a result of this purpose, managers can enhance the productivity and effectiveness of the project team during on-going processes.
