SAFe 5.0 Scrum Master® (SSM)
In this two-day course, attendees will gain an understanding of the role of a Scrum Master in a SAFe enterprise.

This includes learning the key components of Agile at scale development, how Scrum is facilitated throughout the enterprise, and how to execute Iteration Planning. Duration training
