Description

SAFe Scrum Master [SSM] Overview: During this very interactive and information-packed course, you’ll gain an understanding of the Scrum Master role in a Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe 4.0) enterprise. Unlike traditional Scrum Master training that focuses on team-level Scrum, this SSM course presents the role in-context of the entire enterprise and prepares you to successfully plan & execute all SSM-related SAFe ceremonies, such as Program Increments (PI), Iteration Planning, Scrum of Scrums, Innovation and Planning (IP), Inspect and Adapt (I&A), & System Demos. You will learn about SAFe’s Values & Principles that guide the mindset and mechanics of a SAFe enterprise. You’ll also discover how to build high performing Agile teams with a servant leader mindset, and how to coach those teams to deliver the maximum business value. You can also use all you learn here in a “non-SAFe” effort, given a proper mindset of tailoring of selected items that may not be used in the near-term.

Key Elements of this course include:

  • Scrum + XP + Kanban
  • Lean and Systems Thinking
  • Applying & Scaling the Agile Manifesto
  • SAFe’s 4 Values + 9 Principles
  • DevOps, CI, CD & test automation
  • Product Development Flow
  • Six Sigma application in SAFe
  • Agile Mindset for Leadership style
  • Agile metrics and SAFe ceremonies

The Pay-off: SAFe [http://www.scaledagileframework.com/ ] is the world’s leading framework for implementing enterprise agility. Now practiced in over 70% of the US Fortune 100, this proven framework has shown to significantly improve time to market, predictability, product quality and employee engagement. The SSM certification signifies that you are prepared to perform the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe environment, increasing your value to organizations throughout Corporate America.

Additional topics addressed: Team ownership, scrum values, early value delivery, retrospectives, backlogs for stories, features, capabilities & epics, including enablers and NFRs, road-mapping, program boards, MVP, risk management technique via ROAM, vision, objectives and goals, agile architecture, Agile Release Train [ART] and more ~
