Assuming the role of Scrum Master in the context of the entire company

In this two or three day (remote) training you will learn about the role of a Scrum Master in a SAFe® organization. Unlike a traditional Scrum Master training that focuses on the basics of Scrum at the team level, this course is about the role of the Scrum Master in the context of the entire organization. You will learn how to plan and execute a Program Increment (PI). A PI is the primary lever in SAFe® when it comes to ensuring alignment at all levels of a SAFe® organization.

Competencies that the training will provide you with

  • Introduce and establish Scrum in a SAFe® company

  • Conduct ScrumEvents

  • Support effective execution of a program increment (PI)

  • Drive continuous improvement

  • Set up and coach agile teams

  • Accompany and support iterations

  • Support DevOps implementation

Varied mix of theory and practice

Like all our agile trainings, this one is interactive. In addition to the official SAFe® slides and exercises, we additionally convey the knowledge using meaningful flipcharts. The wibas trainers are certified SAFe® Program Consultants (SPC) of Scaled Agile, Inc. For more details about this training, please visit the official SAFe® Website.

Remote or presence – the choice is yours.

We offer our events in two formats: Presence at the wibas training center or remotely. Both forms are interactive live trainings with the usual wibas flair. Whether the training of your choice takes place in presence or remote, you can see next to the respective date. If you book the training as an in-house variant, you decide which format you prefer – of course depending on the current Corona regulations.

The training is aimed at

  • new Scrum Masters who take on this role

  • Experienced Scrum Masters who want to understand their role in the context of a SAFe® organization.

  • Team leaders who want to understand the Scrum Master role
