What you will learn

Unlike traditional Scrum Master training, which focuses on the fundamentals of Scrum at the team level, the SAFe Scrum Master course explores the role of the Scrum Master in the context of the entire organization and prepares participants* to successfully plan and execute Program Increment (PI), the primary foundation for alignment at all levels of a SAFe organization. This includes learning the key components of Agile at Scale Development, how to support Scrum across the organization, and how to execute iteration planning.
