Event description

Description

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is a framework built upon Agile and Lean practices that synchronizes alignment, collaboration, and delivery for multiple Agile teams. SAFe helps businesses address the significant challenges of developing and delivering enterprise-class systems in the shortest lead time.

In this two-day class, you will learn the fundamental responsibilities of a Scrum Master within the context of Scrum and SAFe, and will develop an understanding of the role of the Scrum Master in a SAFe organization. With an extended curriculum compared to traditional Scrum Master training, the SAFe Scrum Master course goes beyond the fundamentals of team-level Scrum and explores the role in the context of the entire enterprise. This class 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 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 that is achievable through SAFe.

At the end of the class, you will qualify for the SAFe Scrum Master (SSM) certification exam.

A SAFe Scrum Master (SSM) supports the teams in implementing SAFe practices, launching Agile Release Trains, and conducting PI Planning activities. 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.
