scrum master certification SSMApplying the Scrum Master role within a Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) enterprise
With SAFe® 4 Scrum Master Certification
Based on version 4.5 of SAFe

In this two-day Scrum Master certification course, attendees will gain an understanding of the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe enterprise. Unlike traditional Scrum Master training that focuses on the fundamentals of team-level Scrum, the SAFe 4.0 Scrum Master certification course explores the role of Scrum in the context of the entire enterprise, and prepares individuals to successfully plan and execute the Program Increment (PI), the primary enabler of alignment throughout all levels of a SAFe organization.

Attendees learn the key components of Scaled Agile development, how Scrum is facilitated throughout the enterprise, and how to execute iteration planning. They’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 that is achievable through SAFe. The SAFe Scrum Master certification (SSM) signifies that attendees are prepared to perform the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe environment, increasing their value to teams and organizations that are implementing SAFe.
