Clearly Agile Conducts a Successful Training on SAFe for Product Owner/Product Management for Louisiana Department of Health

January 24, 2020 – Clearly Agile is excited to share about our successful two-day training on SAFe for Product Owner/Product Management (POPM) for the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH). On Thursday, January 23rd and Friday, January 24th, we provided training and workshops for LDH staff on how to develop the skillsets needed to guide the delivery of value in a Lean enterprise.  

This training demonstrates Louisiana Department of Health’s innovation and dedication to business agility and effective teamwork. LDH is the first agency in Louisiana to attain this new knowledge. The SAFe for POMP certification enables attendees to effectively utilize the activities, tools, and mechanics used to manage backlogs and programs.

This two-day training enables attendees to achieve an in-depth understanding of the value of using Agile Release Train (ART), the value it delivers, and how to effectively apply Lean thinking to write Epics, break them down into Features and Stories, plan and execute Iterations, and plan Program Increments. In addition, it teaches about the continuous delivery pipeline and DevOps culture, to increase the effectiveness as Product Owners and Product Managers. With this training LDH will be better able to make quicker decisions and align the right people to do the work necessary to capitalize on emerging opportunities.    

Jonathan Jenkins, Clearly Agile CEO and Chief Methodologist, successfully facilitated the training, providing attendees critical information on business agility, combining his knowledge of SAFe, Scrum Masters 5.0 and years of experience helping large organizations exploit Agile, Lean, and Scrum.

Attendees commented on how helpful this training was. Participants stated the training was interesting, insightful, engaging, and great. Attendees left feeling confident in their ability to be effective Product Owners and Product Managers.
