About us

AgileSavant is one of the top Scaled Agile Framework Training and Transformation Consulting firms.

AgileSavant has trained more SAFe certified professionals than 86% of all Scaled Agile Partners and over 95% of our SAFe candidates pass the certification exam on their first attempt!   Our coaches and trainers have been involved in the launch of over 50 Agile Release Trains (or ARTs); thus, our service offerings aren’t limited to “book” knowledge of the Scaled Agile Framework. We bring “real-world” & practical experience from many different business contexts to all of our Business Agility training and transformation engagements.   A clear differentiator for us!

Business Agility Transformation Consulting

Business Agility creates an adaptable organization that can achieve business results.
What are the goals for your enterprise?  
AgileSavant can help with the below and other Business Agility Transformation Consulting offerings:

Enterprise-Level Business Agility  Transformation Engagements

AgileSavant has the experience and expertise to help your enterprise adopt the SAFe approach to addressing the challenge of digital transformation through the ‘dual operating system’, one that leverages the stability and resources of the existing organizational hierarchy while implementing a value stream network that leverages the entrepreneurial drive still present in every organization.

By coaching you to organize and/or reorganize the enterprise around the flow of value instead of the traditional organizational silos, AgileSavant can partner with your teams to restore a customer-centric business operating system. Our partnership in this business agility transformation effort shall enable your organization to focus on both the innovation and growth of new ideas as well as the execution, delivery, operation, and support of existing solutions. SAFe is not just for technical teams! You can run your entire business through the dual business operating system.

Business, Product, or Service Unit Agile Release Train (ART) Launches

AgileSavant’s Senior Enterprise Transformation Consultants can work with your organization’s leadership to assess the enterprise strategy, mission, vision and plan of execution to better align these to Lean-Agile values, principles and best practices– with the goal of accelerating the organizations’ ability to deliver value to its internal / external customers or constituents through the formation of Agile Release Trains, or ARTs. 

Our ART Launch engagements start at the appropriate level within the enterprise where we review the enterprise Strategic Themes, establish a Lean-Agile Center of Excellence, or LACE to steer the transformation effort, and create one or several ARTs to develop and support the organization’s value streams. AgileSavant will take your organization through all of the steps within the SAFe Implementation Roadmap to help you establish your first ART, then continue the transformation (if need be) to extend to additional ART launches as necessary.

Start Small with SAFe Quick-Starts, Workshops & Assessments

Perhaps your enterprise has not reached the Tipping Point just yet, or you may be staring the tipping point square in the face, but you don’t have the budget for a large Enterprise Business Agility Transformation nor a full ART Launch. Well… no matter the situation, AgileSavant has some answers:

SAFe Quick Starts – Whether the case is you have a limited budget and don’t know where to start, or you’ve started your SAFe implementation but things seem stuck. AgileSavant can customize a SAFe Quick Start engagement to fit within your budget and we’ll provide the guidance to get your organization the biggest bang for your buck to get you started or “un-stuck” with SAFe.

SAFe Workshops & Assessments – Scaled Agile Inc. provides a wealth of packaged workshops & assessment tools that are delivered by certified SAFe Program Consultants (SPCs). Give us a call for guidance on how best to leverage these packaged tools and services.
