Most organizations have realized the need to work agile with their projects, and Scrum is one of the most popular and effective project management tools for that. As a Scrum Master, you can have a key role in your organization's efforts to run projects more flexibly and successfully.
Scrum was initially used as a method by software developers who should be able to respond quickly when their customers changed requirements in the middle of a project process. But as a project management tool Scrum is relevant for all industries.
The basic idea in Scrum is that it is impossible to predict the development of a project and that it is therefore necessary to be able to change constantly during the work process. This is done by working in short sprints or iterations instead of a long stretch. The name Scrum originates from rugby, where it signifies when the ball is brought back into play after a game stoppage.
While Scrum is typically used as a project management tool in a single team that has its own characteristics and dynamics, SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) is a method of facilitating and coordinating multiple agile teams in a single organization. During the course, you will learn how to become part of an Agile Release Train, where several teams work towards a common goal to achieve the greatest possible shared value.
Your primary responsibility as a Scrum Master is to make sure that the individual iterations of the project are successfully implemented and that these advances are communicated to the project owner on an ongoing basis. You must also make sure that the team stays within the Scrum framework and that all members fulfill their roles.
As a SAFe Scrum Master, your responsibilities will be extended to ensure that you have insight into the other agile teams in your organization and that you are able to ensure collaboration across the organization. Once you are certified SAFe® Scrum Master, you can work as a Scrum Master in a SAFe organization, increasing your value for teams and organizations working on implementing SAFe.
In addition to becoming a certified SAFe Scrum Master, you will receive training in servant leadership, coaching, meeting facilitation, and transformational leadership during the course so that you can master all aspects of your role. During the course we also work with:
Attendees learn how to work with Scrum in relation to the entire company and to plan and implement programme enhancement. The primary factor for adjustment at all levels in a SAFe organization.

Upon passing the exam, you will receive your certification and a one-year membership of Scaled Agile.
