COURSE CONTENT INTRO

SAFe Scrum Master [SSM] Overview: If you are in a any size company, working on programs that involve more than just a couple simple scrum teams, then a cert in SAFe will clearly set you apart. Unlike traditional agile practioner and scrum master training certs that covers only team-level concepts and practices, this SSM course presents the role in-context of the program & enterprise and prepares you to successfully plan & execute all SSM-related SAFe ceremonies of team level PLUS higher levels such as Program Increments (PI), ART Synch-up, Innovation and Planning (IP), Program level Inspect and Adapt (I&A), ART Scrum of Scrums & System Demos.

_________________
