Course Overview

Extending the Coaching Academy for organizations doing SAFe®

Doing Scrum within SAFe adds a few responsibilities to the Scrum Master in addition to needing to understand how their teams work within the SAFe environment. This course is intended to add training in these new responsibilities Scrum Masters working in SAFe must have. Topics include:

  1. Introduction. The Scrum Master in the SAFe environment
    • Working as part of the program
    • Working with the Release Train Engineer
    • Working with other Scrum Teams
  2. The Scrum Master During the Program Increment
    • Guiding the team to plan for completion of releasable increments
    • Ensuring requests made are agreed to 
  3. The Scrum Master's Responsibilities During the Program Increment Planning Event
  4. Guide to helping Scrum Team Members understand the bigger picture SAFe creates
  5. What the Team Needs to Know About Scrum in SAFe

This course is intended to be done in conjunction with the Scrum Master Coaching Academy (SMCA) and is not offered on a standalone basis. The topics in this course are shorter than the ones in the SMCA since it is anticipated they will be covered in parallel with that course. Essentially this course offers readings and additional Q&A sessions for participants.  It is included in the Coaching Academy For Large Organizations that for the monthly cost of getting 3-4 Scrum Masters trained you can grow all of your Agile Team Coaches.
