Learn how to perform the role of Scrum Master in the context of the whole company.
In this training, we will introduce you to the role of a Scrum Master in a SAFe® organisation. Unlike traditional Scrum Master training, which focuses on the fundamentals of Scrum at the team level, this course covers the role of the Scrum Master in the context of the entire organisation. You will learn how to plan and execute Program Increment (PI), which is the primary tool in SAFe® used to ensure alignment at all levels of the SAFe® organisation.
Organisation of training:
A SAFe® Program Consultant (SPC) certified by Scaled Agile, Inc. will guide you through the course.
The course is interactive, combining official SAFe® training materials, hands-on exercises and sharing the lecturer’s real-world experience with implementing SAFe® principles in large companies operating in the Czech Republic.
Participation in the course entitles you to take the globally recognised SAFe® Scrum Master (SSM) certification exam. The course fee covers one attempt to pass the exam.
Passing the certification exam should take place online within 30 calendar days of completing the course.
