SAFe® 5.0 Scrum Master – Applying the Scrum Master role with a SAFe® Enterprise (Remote)

COURSE OVERVIEW

In this two-day course (presented remotely over 4 half-days), attendees gain an understanding of the role of a Scrum Master in a SAFe enterprise.

This includes learning the key components of Agile at scale development, how Scrum is facilitated throughout the enterprise, and how to execute Iteration Planning.

Attendees 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 at scale. SAFe 5 Scrum Master (SSM) certification signifies that people are prepared to perform the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe environment, increasing their value to teams and organisations that are implementing SAFe.
