Our unique Superflex concept

Our unique Leading SAFe Superflex course allows you to take the course in four modules when it suits you. We run each module both morning and afternoon, over several weeks, so you can put together your course to fit into your working day.

With Leading SAFe® Superflex, you can take Leading SAFe online over 4 half days, where you choose whether you want to participate in the morning 9-12.30 or the afternoon 1-4.30. You can easily participate in the morning one day and in the afternoon the other day.

We run Leading SAFe Superflex every 3 weeks, all year!

We also offer the Leading SAFe course as a physical classroom course, if you would rather take the course over 2 full days. We also hold this course online twice every six months.
