Scaled Agile Framework 6.0: Leading SAFe (SA) - Classroom in Dutch

"Locatie helemaal top, fijn dat je makkelijk kunt parkeren. Alles goed geregeld qua koffie/thee/snacks en lunch. Ik vond het wel 2 hele intensieve dagen, heel veel lesstof/ slides. Ik had het persoonlijk leuker gevonden als er meer praktijk oefeningen bij zouden zitten maar ik snap dat dit niet kan in 2 dagen. Wel een leuke, enthousiaste trainer. Overall een goede training." - 08-04-2024 11:41

Gladwell Academy is vooral bekend om onze expertise op het Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), dat we omarmden als een van de eerste trainingsaanbieders (of partners) in Europa, en waarvoor we tot de wereldwijde top vijf van partners behoren. Toch vloeit onze opleidingsontwikkeling voort uit een diepere overtuiging: dat digitale transformatie wereldwijde leiders bouwt in de business van morgen. Rondom deze missie hebben we een best-in-class portfolio opgebouwd op het gebied van Scrum en Kanban, informatiebeheer, bedrijfsinnovatie en andere gebieden, evenals trainingen gericht op verschillende toepassingsgebieden, ofwel gericht op markten (Hardware, Hoger Onderwijs) of richting bedrijfsdisciplines (Finance & Control, HR, Leiderschap).

Gladwell Academy maakt samen met Blinklane Consulting, VKA, House of Performance en Schickler onderdeel uit van de Highberg Group. De groep focust zich op transformatieprocessen op het snijvlak van business agility, data, IT en privacy. Binnen de Highberg Group kunnen wij daarmee het complete spectrum aan business transformatie aanbieden, van kennis overdracht tot directe implementatie en optimalisatie. Dit door middel van training, coaching en consulting.

Scaled Agile Framework 6.0: SAFe Release Train Engineer (RTE) - Virtual

"The flow of content was very well designed. 5 min one-function breaks were super helpful to recharge the batteries. Quizzes at the start of days 2 & 3 were helpful checks on what's been learned and what to expect during the exam. The most valuable part of the course were the discussions moderated by the trainer that really helped everyone learn from each others' experiences" - 23-02-2024 09:01

"The course was ok. It is a little cramped time wise and you feel like you are running for 4 days straight. Would be really nice if we could spend a little more time on the individual tasks to get an actual result. Some teams hardly got started due to discussions. Also most tasks was made in mural, so we cannot actually see what we did anymore. It would have been nice to be able to reference the training material with the tasks that we completed." - 04-01-2024 08:35

"Trainer Niels weet van de theorie een duidelijk verhaal te maken en de essentie over te brengen, wat erg belangrijk is met een uitgebreid framework als SAFe. Service en locatie waren uitmuntend.
Ik besefte vooraf niet dat de eerste 2 dagen (in de praktijk 2,5) bedoeld waren voor Leading SAFe, daar zat voor mij geen toegevoegde waarde daar ik die kennis al heb. Daardoor was het voor mij veel tijd voor de waarde die ik zocht (Implementing SAFe). Ik vermoed dat het voor een deel van de doelgroep (die Leading SAFe al beheersen) nuttig kan zijn om de training modulair aan te bieden." - 20-12-2023 12:22

Scaled Agile Framework 6.0: SAFe for Architects (ARCH) - Virtual

"The training resembles the Leading SAFe Training quite a lot. However, I value the trainer more in this case. Yet, not to disqualify Arie as a trainer, but for a training like this I'd expect a trainer with more experience in the role of System Architect.

It is really a pity that it is an online training. Also, 4 is really a very small group to have enough experience and interaction in the room.

This is why I will rate the training as 'unsatisfied' not because I am not satisfied at all but I expected more.

The collaboration environment is simple and helps to bring varience in the training.
Yet, the learning experience does not come even close to my experience with Xebia in the Scrum and PO trainings with Jeff Sutherland and David Bulkin.

The content is Ok, although I do have an opinion on the complexity of SAFe.
Planning and support are good, but the TTF cases should have been shared well before the training.

The training content has many 'discussion' type of excercises. I like a more empirical style with more reallife examples and pitfalls." - 15-11-2023 16:06

Scaled Agile Framework 6.0: SAFe Release Train Engineer (RTE) - Virtual

"The course covered basically the whole SAFe framework, with an emphasis on the RTE role, which matched my expectations. The trainer kept the atmosphere lively, even though there was a lot of information to cover, really great. I liked the breakouts into smaller groups for practicing with the material, but I think some exercises could benefit from better instructions within the virtual classroom; we were a little lost from time to time. The virtual classroom tool itself could be improved a bit as well: click and drag to select multiple items would be awesome, and it would save time if the tool could remember the last item type you used and use that for the next item as well. It was quite time consuming to change the item type manually every time. The use of Zoom for the course was very convenient for me and worked well for this course. One thing that I would improve to increase information retention for the participants is more "serious games" in the course, like quizzes or matching statements. These could be done in the virtual classroom environment, and could replace simply presenting some the information." - 27-10-2023 09:55

"Even though I've been to many trainings on different topics, I can say without a doubt that the Implementing SAFe (SPC) course, led by Niels Groen and Hans van Herwaarden, was one of a kind and very educational.

From the very beginning of the course, it was clear that Niels and Hans are more than just trainers; they are also deeply experienced experts and passionate supporters of the SAFe methodology. Their synergetic way of teaching brought academic ideas to life and turned them into chunks of knowledge that were easy to understand and useful.

The sessions were especially good because they were involved and interesting. It was carefully planned that each module would encourage active involvement and help everyone learn by working together. Practical activities, simulations, and case studies were cleverly used to help students really understand how SAFe principles work in the real world. This made sure that the information they learned wasn't just theoretical, but also very useful.

The learning journey was also very rich and relatable because they were able to use personal stories, useful insights, and anecdotal proof in their lessons. Excitement, wonder, and a shared desire to learn more about the SAFe framework filled the training room like an electric current.

They cared about the success of their trainees in more ways than just the training room. By giving their students extra readings and tools and talking about problems they were having in real life, Niels and Hans showed that they were truly committed to helping their students understand SAFe principles in a deep and lasting way.

To future participants of the Implementing SAFe course, I wholeheartedly recommend embarking on this journey with Niels and Hans as your guides. Not only will you gain a wealth of knowledge, but you will also experience a unique learning adventure that will linger in your professional memory for years to come.

In closing, I extend my deepest gratitude to Niels Groen and Hans van Herwaarden for not merely being exceptional trainers but for being mentors, guides, and relentless supporters of our learning endeavors." - 08-10-2023 19:41

"Like:
Despite the training being very long, the trainers prepared it very well. As a solution to the tiresomeness and duration of the training, they used good tricks such as music, kahoots, and a good mood.
Good examples offered by the trainers and good discussions related to different topics.
It's a good idea to have a user retrospective each day, and the trainers really considered it.
Working in groups with support from trainers

What could be improved:
- It is a bit hard to understand some of the SAFe material (slides) without a good trainer to explain it to you (the last 2 chapters)

"I must say that RTE training I attended recently has been one of a kind. Although content was very complex and sometime difficult to me understand as I do not hold yet RTE role, my takeaways are quite huge and solid. I believe that it will help me significantly at the beginning of my upcoming RTE role transition. What I admired mostly was the way how Eduardo kept my attention whole day with his hands on experience, incredible knowledge, dedication and humor. He created great environment to discuss, share and common understanding of the RTE topic. I think that composition of training was also great balance of theory, discussions as well some "fun". Definitely recommend it!
