The Training

A Scrum Master is a servant leader who promotes the Scrum framework, coaches the team on Agile practices and removes obstacles to help the team achieve their goals. Take your organization's adaptability to the next level with the SAFe Scrum Master (SSM) training.

During this two-day training, you'll discover what your role as Scrum Master is relative to the entire organization. You will learn:

  • Significance of Scrum in a SAFe environment

  • Facilitating Scrum (events) throughout the organization

  • Main Agile components of scale development

  • Setting up Agile teams (through โ€˜servant leadersโ€™)

  • Coaching skills to maximize results at scale

  • Planning & execution of Program Increment (PI)

  • Effective execution of Iteration Planning

I thought the course was excellent. It was clear that the presenter took the time to evaluate the level of experience in the room and focused the delivery accordingly.

Our SAFe Scrum Master courses are taught by one or two (SAFe Program Consultants) or even SPCTs (SAFe Program Consultant Trainers). These inspiring trainers are consultants who are active in the field and have extensive SAFe experience in training and implementing SAFe at large organizations

Who is it for?

This training is for people who are not yet familiar with the role of Scrum Master, as people who want a better understanding of the role and how it fits into the context of a full SAFeยฎ enterprise. Suitable participants for this training include new or existing Scrum Masters, Release Train Engineers and team leaders.
