    Location To Be Determined ,MA

    In this two-day Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe) training course, you will gain the knowledge necessary to lead an enterprise-level Agile transformation by leveraging SAFe and its underlying principles of Lean thinking and Product Development Flow.

    Scale Agile Across Multiple Teams or the Enterprise

    Organizations have been using Agile methodologies for years to deliver more value to their customers in less time. Most organizations are complex systems that require collaboration and coordination across multiple delivery teams. This two-day class will show you how to do it well. Additionally, when other areas of your company are not leveraging Agile, the ability to skyrocket results becomes a daunting task. You will learn how to handle these hurdles in this class. The SAFe framework, developed by Dean Leffingwell, outlines an approach to help organizations harness the power of Agile across delivery teams and your full organization.

    Become a Certified SAFe Agilist

    Those who wish to pursue certification in SAFe are eligible to complete the exam to earn the SAFe Agilist certification. As more organizations look to scale Agile, the recognition of your knowledge and experience is valuable both to you and others. Attendees will develop an understanding of how the principles and practices of the framework support Lean thinking, Agile Development, SAFe ScrumXP, Agile Release Train, Agile Portfolio Management, Agile Architecture and Scaling Leadership. Whether at the team, program, or portfolio level, attendees will be able to explain and implement the practices necessary to achieve business and technical alignment and consistent, sustainable delivery of value.

You'll learn how to apply a process and maximize the use of technology platforms that can dramatically increase your ability to achieve life's most important outcomes by consistently making choices that create extraordinary value for yourself and your organization.

  • AMA2010 Leadership Development for Women
    12/15/2016 - 12/16/2016
    LOCATION TO BE DETERMINED ,PA

    Despite years of advances in both legal and corporate policy, many qualified women don't get the jobs they want. Misperceptions, stereotypes, and misplaced emotions on the part of either sex can still sabotage a woman's career hopes-unless she takes a more strategic approach to her career.

    In this hands-on course, you learn how to strategically use your strengths and abilities (your competitive edge) while mastering your emotions, even in the most unwelcoming atmosphere. You'll learn how to build a network of support, take smart risks, and view competition in a more positive light. Discover how to conduct yourself in a manner that earns you respect, and pursue your goals with positive energy. You will return to your job feeling confident, ready to compete fearlessly, and in a better position to be recognized for your true capabilities.

  • Essential JavaScript
    12/15/2016 - 12/16/2016

    In this course, you will be provided with an introduction to and acquire experience working with the JavaScript programming language in the environment it's mostly commonly used: the browser. JavaScript is simple and elegant, but is often difficult to work with because it's so different from the programming languages most developers are used to working with.

    You'll get answers to these questions:

    • What is JavaScript, how does it relate to other programming languages, and how do you script your web pages with it?
    • How do you traverse and manipulate the DOM and how do you handle events in ways that work in all browsers?
    • What is Ajax and how does JavaScript make it possible?
    • What are closures and prototypes and other exotic features of JavaScript?

    Note: You are required to bring your own laptop.
