SAFe Advanced Scrum Master (SASM)

Take Advanced Scrum Master (SASM) from an authorized Scaled Agile Partner

This two-day course prepares current Scrum Masters for their leadership role in facilitating Agile team, program, and enterprise success in a Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®) implementation. The course covers facilitation of cross-team interactions in support of program execution and relentless improvement. It enhances the Scrum paradigm with an introduction to scalable engineering and DevOps practices; the application of Kanban to facilitate the flow of value; and supporting interactions with architects, product management, and other critical stakeholders in the larger program and enterprise contexts.

Grow-Lean is a Scaled Agile Partner and our trainers are approved to deliver this session.
