Course Description 

Applying the Scrum Master role within a SAFe® enterprise 

With SAFe®5 Scrum Master Certification


Summary:

Build your skills as a high-performing team member of an Agile Release Train (ART)—and prepare to support the facilitation of team and program events— when you become a SAFe® 5 Scrum Master (SSM). 

In 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 Scrum Master course explores the role of the Scrum Master 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. 


Our workshops are not a one-way knowledge transfer. Participants Play, Build, Debate and Collaborate throughout the learning process. 

What you’ll learn 

To perform the role of a SAFe® Scrum Master, attendees should be able to: 

  • Describe Scrum in a SAFe enterprise 
  • Facilitate Scrum events 
  • Facilitate effective Iteration execution 
  • Support effective Program Increment execution 
  • Support relentless improvement 
  • Coach Agile teams for maximum business results 
  • Support DevOps implementation 

Topics Covered

  • Introducing Scrum in SAFe 
  • Characterizing the role of the Scrum Master 
  • Experiencing Program Increment planning 
  • Facilitating Iteration execution 
  • Finishing the Program Increment
