So the SPCT isn’t just a ‘higher level SPC’. Deema: “Correct. As part of the validation process, we invite all SPCT candidates to ‘Immersion week’ where they demonstrate what they’re capable of as trainers, and interact directly with the Framework authors. But we go a lot further.
The demands can be extensive, in terms of acquiring proven experience with launching ARTs and organising around value, and successful SAFe implementations with clear business outcomes.”
She continues: “Quite surprising that Eduardo Alvim actually completed these requirements so quickly – he already had almost everything he needed under his belt by the time he applied for the SPCT Program. But then, he has many years of SAFe transformations behind him indeed.”
