SAFe Scrum Master Logo

In our two-day Intermediate level course, attendees 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 explores the role of the Scrum Master in the context of the entire enterprise, and prepares attendees to successfully plan and execute the Program Increment (PI), the primary enabler of alignment throughout all levels of a SAFe organisation.

You’ll learn the key components of Agile at scale development, how Scrum is facilitated throughout the enterprise, and how to execute Iteration Planning. You’ll also discover how to build high performing Agile teams by becoming a servant leader and coach, and how to coach those teams to deliver the maximum business value.

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 organisations that are implementing SAFe.

The full price of this course is £895.00 (+ VAT) – early bookings (up to two weeks prior to the course date)  receive a £100.00 early bird discount.
