SAFe Scrum Master certification – Certified SAFe Scrum Master (SSM)

The Scrum Master is invaluable in any Agile organization. This is the person responsible for integrating Scrum practices into an organization. Removing roadblocks and impediments, facilitating processes, working closely with the Product Owner and the team to ensure the Scrum values and practices are followed are just part of the Scrum Master’s duties.

The Scrum Master role in a SAFe Enterprise

The SSM certification training explains the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe enterprise and gives participants a clear picture of the responsibilities a Scrum Master would have.

Throughout the training, participants will understand the Scrum framework, get familiar with Scrum roles and artifacts, and learn how to successfully plan, facilitate and finish a program increment.

The two-day course will cover the following topics and teach participants:

  • Scrum in a SAFe enterprise
  • how to perform the role of the Scrum Master in SAFe organizations
  • how to facilitate Scrum events, including Program Iteration Planning, backlog refinement, team and system demos, and iteration retrospective
  • how to support effective Program Increment execution

The SAFe Scrum Master Certification course will help participants learn how to build high performing Agile teams, by becoming a servant leader and coach. And more importantly, how to coach the teams to deliver maximum business value that can be delivered through SAFe.

Theoretical Knowledge with Practical Examples

In order to prepare participants to perform the role of a Scrum Master in a SAFe environment, the course consists of practical examples and exercises through which participants will experience a whole iteration. From planning and execution, to identifying new ways how to track iteration progress and improve collaboration and synchronization between team members and teams, exploring ways to improve at Program level using the Inspect and Adapt method, and identify ways to facilitate better meetings and manage conflicts.
