SAFe Implementation Roadmap While no two adoptions are identical and there is rarely a perfectly sequential step-by-step implementation in any enterprise, we know that businesses getting the best results typically follow a path similar to that shown in the Implementation Roadmap.
Scaled Agile’s role-based offerings focus on the skills, knowledge, and experience required to successfully perform the job in a SAFe working environment. Before taking the certification exam, individuals are required to attend the relevant SAFe course and are highly encouraged to read recommended books and articles, and take advantage of videos and enablement resources, in addition to gaining real-world experience in the role.Scaled Agile maintains rigorous quality standards to ensure that those who have earned the certification are well prepared to effectively fulfill their role in a SAFe enterprise.
Review the relevant SAFe® Certification page for complete details on the exam:
Detailed exam study guides are available to help prepare for the exam and are part of the Learning Plan provided to candidates on the SAFe Community Platform. Each study guide provides relevant and content-specific exam information, such as the certification role description, prerequisite skills and knowledge, exam objectives, and a comprehensive reading list.
Practice tests can help prepare for the exam and are part of the Learning Plan on the SAFe Community Platform. With a practice test candidates can ‘test before the test.’ It simulates the actual certification exam in duration, difficulty, and topic area. Passing the practice test does not guarantee passing the certification exam, but it provides a testing simulation, and the score report can be used to identify an individual’s strengths and weaknesses.
Practice tests are available at no additional charge, delivered through the Learning Plan in the SAFe Community Platform, and can be taken as many times as needed. Note that testers will receive the same bank of questions each time, but they will be randomized.
Sample tests provide examples of the type and format of the questions to expect on the certification exam. They are publicly available for all exams under Exam Details on each certification detail page.
Leverage experience. It’s more than being book smart. Scaled Agile exams test specific knowledge, skill, experience, and attitudes related to each SAFe job role. Combining a person’s learning and studying with their real-world experiences is key to becoming SAFe® Certified.
The following applies to all Scaled Agile exams, except sample tests and practice tests:
*There is a fee associated with each retake attempt. See each exam page for the specific retake fee associated with the exam.
Becoming SAFe certified should be the beginning of an ongoing pursuit of learning and knowledge.
A SAFE (simple agreement for future equity) is an agreement between an investor and a company that provides rights to the investor for future equity in the company similar to a warrant, except without determining a specific price per share at the time of the initial investment. The SAFE investor receives the future shares when a priced round of investment or liquidity event occurs. SAFEs are intended to provide a simpler mechanism for startups to seek initial funding than convertible notes.
The precise conditions of a SAFE vary. However, the basic mechanics are that the investor provides a certain amount of funding to the company at signing. In return, the investor receives stock in the company at a later date, in connection with specific, contractually-agreed on liquidity events. The primary trigger is generally the sale of preferred shares by the company, typically as part of a future priced fund-raising round. Unlike a straight purchase of equity, shares are not valued at the time the SAFE is signed. Instead, investors and the company negotiate the mechanism by which future shares will be issued, and defer actual valuation. These conditions generally involve a valuation cap for the company and/or a discount to the share valuation at the moment of the trigger event. In this way, the SAFE investor shares in the upside of the company between the time the SAFE is signed (and funding provided) and the trigger event.
Unlike a convertible note, a SAFE is not a loan; it is more like a warrant. In particular, there is no interest paid and no maturity date, and therefore SAFEs are not subject to the regulations that debt may be in many jurisdictions. This simplicity is the primary motivation of a SAFE. 'Safes should work just like convertible notes, but with fewer complications', according to startup accelerator Y Combinator.
Y Combinator released the Simple Agreement for Future Equity ('SAFE') investment instrument as an alternative to convertible debt in late 2013. This investment vehicle has since become popular in the U.S., Canada, and Israel, due to its simplicity and low transaction costs. However, as use has become more prevalent, concerns have emerged as to its possible impact on entrepreneurs, especially where multiple SAFE investment rounds are done prior to a priced equity round, as well as possible dangers for non-accredited crowdfunding investors who might invest in SAFEs of companies that realistically will never obtain VC financing, and therefore never trigger a conversion into equity.
