In SAFe®, architects play a key role in the trio of leaders that includes product managers and the release train engineer. It’s these people who work together to execute programs and guide Agile Release Trains (ARTs) to enable continuous value flow.

 

In the SAFe® for Architects course, you’ll get the context you need to align architecture with business value. You’ll understand how system, solution, and enterprise architects collaboratively deliver architectural solutions. And you’ll get the guidance and tools you need to work effectively in remote environments with distributed teams.
