Certified SAFe 6.0 Scrum Master (SSM) Training2024-06-07T17:36:49+00:00

In this two-day course, you’ll gain an understanding of the role of Scrum Master in an enterprise. Unlike traditional Scrum Master training that focuses only on the fundamentals of team-level Scrum, this SSM course additionally explores the role of Scrum in the context of the entire enterprise, and prepares you to successfully plan and execute the Program Increment (PI), the primary enabler of alignment throughout all levels of a SAFe organization. This includes learning the key components of scaled Agile 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 that is achievable through the Scaled Agile Framework. The SSM certification signifies that in addition to basic Team level Scrum, you are prepared to perform the role of Scrum Master in a SAFe environment, increasing your value to teams and organizations.

Does this class qualify towards the contact hours needed as a prerequisite for taking the PMI-ACP certification?2020-12-02T15:19:11+00:00
