In this two-day course, you 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 will take your Scrum Master skills to the next level by exploring the Scrum Master role in the context of organizations that are working within the Scaled Agile Framework, You will be prepared to plan and execute the Program Increment (PI) successfully which is described as the heartbeat of a SAFe® organization. This includes learning the key components of Agile, Scrum, Lean and Kanban are used to deliver customer value.
You will discover how to build high performing Agile teams, and how to coach those teams to deliver the maximum business value at scale. SAFe® 5 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®.
If your enterprise is only starting to move to agile, SAFe® may be a viable choice to cross the gap due to its more prescriptive approach than, say, Disciplined Agile (DA), which provides greater consistency and customization but still allows an organisation to grasp agile concepts. Another advantage of Scaled Agile is that it also includes upper-level stakeholders mixing planning with the strategic goals of the business.
SAFe® prioritizes jobs with methods like WSJF (Weighted Shortest Job First). WSJF is a priority model used to sequence jobs like epics, features and capabilities to deliver the fastest maximum business value. The SAFe® Framework also means that everybody from top management to individual agile teams has the same mission and aim while engaging on the most critical topics at hand.
