Going well beyond the standard SAFe training, this session deep dives into the practical tips and tricks that only over 15 combined years of real world experience can teach. Peppered with innumerable war stories, this session provides plenty of entertainment (as well as education) in the form of personal anecdotes, cautionary tales and protips for both the collocated Agile Release Train and its more complicated globally distributed cousins. No matter your context, you are sure to find plenty of actionable ideas for launching and operating Agile Release Trains because, lets face it, train wrecks transcend industries, business and technology silos, leaders and teams!
