Facilitate, execute and improve your company’s Agile Release Trains

SAFe® Release Train Engineer 6.0 Certification is a three-day experiential workshop that is designed to live the concept of “Training from the back of the room”. This certification program will enable you to learn the art of facilitating successful program execution, with being a true servant leader.

The Release Train Engineer (RTE) in SAFe is a leadership role that goes beyond managing and optimising flow of value through the ART. The RTE owns the ART improvement roadmap, communicating with stakeholders, escalating impediments, and fostering culture of relentless improvement.

What differentiates the SAFe RTE training at Gladwell Academy India?

At Gladwell India, we deliver the 3-day experiential learning program with a lot of focus on hands-on activities. We trigger the conversations amongst participants which comes from the true experience. The trainers at Gladwell guide the program with a lot of real time examples which makes people think and reflect at every stage of the program. This process will trigger a lot of positive aspects in the participants and will drive to create a list of possible actions to taken when they go back to perform the role. A thought from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset from managers to servant leaders, from doers to enablers, from micro thinking to macro thinking & from outputs to outcomes. During the course, you will also learn about large group facilitation techniques, enabling you to perform the role of an RTE with a true Lean-Agile mindset and SAFe Agile spirit.

The content fully matched with my expectations. Besides that, I was impressed by the knowledge level and training capabilities of the trainer.

Our Release Train Engineer courses are taught by one or two SPCTs (SAFe Program Consultant Trainers). These inspiring trainers are consultants who are active in the field and have extensive SAFe experience in training and coaching leaders and RTEs to deliver value. With the unique flavour of business story telling our workshops are highly engaged, informative and inspiring.
