The Scaled Agile Framework is a brilliant and detailed framework referred to when Agile is used in larger organisations. SAFe is a good framework to understand since it adds a few additional roles and ceremonies to KANBAN and SCRUM forming a framework that can scale for large teams and organisations. Should you be looking for answers to scaling an Agile implementation or Agile for larger cross-functional teams, SAFe is a good course to consider.
The SCRUM framework also has many scaling options for instance by introducing SCRUM or SCRUM ceremonies or looking into due track SCRUM.
The SCRUM course does not cover KANBAN. DVT does, however, combine SCRUM and KANBAN in a 3-day course that covers both. SCRUM and KANBAN can be combined in forming an Agile framework specific to your environment yet utilising the best elements of two brilliant frameworks. Agile Coaching is a vital part in customising an Agile framework to work for your unique environment and unique challenges.
The core idea of Lean is to maximise customer value while minimising waste. All Agile Frameworks (including SCRUM and KANBAN) are based on the Lean principle with regards to value-driven focus and minimising any waste. In fact Lean is more focused on the mindset and thinking which overlaps brilliantly with regards to any Agile framework as both is based on the same principles and values.
