In 2013 Mark made major contributions to the framework which led him to being named the world’s first SAFe Program Consultant Trainer (SPCT) outside of Scaled Agile Inc. Mark is one of just a handful of SAFe Fellows in the world and Agile Rising is one of only 13 organizations that can provide a SAFe Fellow level of coaching.
