SAFe Scrum Master (SSM)

SAFe Scrum Master BadgeIn this two-day course, you’ll gain an under­stand­ing of the role of Scrum Mas­ter in a SAFe enterprise.Unlike tra­di­tion­al Scrum Mas­ter train­ing that focus­es on the fun­da­men­tals of team-lev­el Scrum, the SAFe 4.0 Scrum Mas­ter course explores the role of Scrum in the con­text of the entire enter­prise, and pre­pares you to suc­cess­ful­ly plan and exe­cute the Pro­gram Incre­ment (PI), the pri­ma­ry enabler of align­ment through­out all lev­els of a SAFe orga­ni­za­tion.

This includes learn­ing the key com­po­nents of scaled Agile devel­op­ment, how Scrum is facil­i­tat­ed through­out the enter­prise, and how to exe­cute iter­a­tion plan­ning. You’ll also dis­cov­er how to build high per­form­ing Agile teams by becom­ing a ser­vant leader and coach, and how to coach those teams to deliv­er the max­i­mum busi­ness val­ue that is achiev­able through SAFe. The SSM cer­ti­fi­ca­tion sig­ni­fies that you are pre­pared to per­form the role of Scrum Mas­ter in a SAFe envi­ron­ment, increas­ing your val­ue to teams and orga­ni­za­tions that are imple­ment­ing SAFe.
