What is a SPC?

Certified SAFe® Program Consultants (SPCs) are change agents who combine their technical knowledge of SAFe with an intrinsic motivation to improve the company’s software and systems development processes. They play a critical role in successfully implementing SAFe. SPCs come from numerous internal or external roles, including business and technology leaders, portfolio/program/project managers, process leads, architects, analysts, and consultants.

Why is it a critical role to support your needs?

As outlined in the Implementation Roadmap series, changing an enterprise's development practices and behavior is a significant challenge. To achieve meaningful and lasting change, author John P. Kotter notes that a "sufficiently powerful guiding coalition" of stakeholders is needed.
