Working Differently: Learning and Collaboration
in the Modern World

For as long as we can remember, face-to-face communication was the most effective and efficient way to work; it’s one of Agile’s foundational assumptions. We experienced this in the form of colocated workspaces, big room group planning, classroom training, and the like. That all changed in the spring of 2020 when the world was challenged to rethink the work experience. We had to find a way to enable interactions that fulfilled the promise of ‘face-to-face’ without actually being in the same physical space.

This track celebrates the SAFe community’s deeply innovative approach to adaptation. You’ll learn how virtual training has become even more effective than classroom training, remote planning more inclusive and equitable, and workshops more actionable. You’ll hear how technology was used to enable new kinds of interactions; how learning was redesigned to fit our virtual lifestyle; and you’ll learn new ways to motivate, facilitate, and engage.


Topics might include:

  • Virtual classroom, asynchronous global training, modularity, eLearning, blended learning,
  • Partner story how the new world is better/more effective than the old world.
  • Customer story how virtualizing learning accelerated team/train formation and execution.
  • Remote Planning, Collaboration / Facilliation, Workshops
  • Collaboration inside and outside your organization – with delivery partners, suppliers, and other parts of the globe
