SAFe® Scrum Master

Applying the Scrum Master role
within a SAFe® enterprise

Build your skills as a high-performing team member of an Agile Release Train (ART)—and prepare to support the facilitation of team and program events — when you become a SAFe® 5 Scrum Master (SSM).

In this two-day course, you’ll 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 Scrum Master course explores the role of the Scrum Master 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.

Who will benefit?

Intended for people new to the role of Scrum Master, or people wanting to better understand the role and how it fits in a SAFe enterprise, attendees typically include:

  • New or existing Scrum Masters

  • Team Leads

  • Release Train Engineers
