You will learn how to scale agile development in multiple teams, how Scrum can be deployed to the rest of the company, and how you can plan and execute an iteration in the agile team.
Learning goals
As a Scrum Master, you must be able to:
• Describe Scrum at an agile company

• Contribute to the execution of programs in an Agile Release Train
• Drive continuous improvements
• Coach agile teams
• Support a DevOps implementation
Course benefits
At the course, you will learn how to create a good team by using Servant Leadership and a coaching approach. In addition to this, you will learn how to guide and coach the team to deliver a maximum business value in a scaled agile setup. A SAFe 5 Scrum Master (SSM) certificate signals that you can perform the Scrum Master role in a SAFe environment, which will make you valuable for all organisations that are using or considering to implement SAFe.
