Description

The Framework Series | SAFe Scrum Master

What to Expect:

In this two-day course, attendees will gain an understanding of the role of a 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 attendees 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 Agile at scale development, how Scrum is facilitated throughout the enterprise, and how to execute Iteration Planning.

Attendees will 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 at scale. SAFe 4 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 organizations that are implementing SAFe.

Attending this course prepares individuals to take the SAFe 4 Scrum Master exam in order to receive the SAFe Scrum Master (SSM) certification.

Topics covered:

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

What is SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework)?

As the world’s leading framework for scaling Agile across the enterprise, the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) empowers complex organizations to achieve the benefits of Lean-Agile software and systems development at scale.

Since 2011, hundreds of the world’s largest organizations have discovered its benefits: faster time-to-market, dramatic increases in productivity and quality, and more motivated and engaged employees.

How does SAFe do this? SAFe brings together thought leadership from Agile development, systems thinking, and Lean product development into a framework that provides a set of principles, values and guidance for Lean-Agile development.

The Scaled Agile Framework is a body of knowledge, graphically represented in the SAFe Big Picture, and is freely available at scaledagileframework.com. Each icon on the Big Picture links to a supporting article that provides detailed guidance on the concept being represented.
