Below is a representative sample of the tracks for the 2019 European SAFe Summit. Stay tuned for the full agenda!
The journey to becoming a Lean enterprise involves significant changes to organizational culture, roles, and practices. The most successful transformations are guided by actively engaged Lean-Agile leaders who know and show the new way of working by exemplifying SAFe® core values and principles.
