Scaled Agile, provider of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), has announced the launch of a new certification: SAFe Advanced Scrum Master (ASM). The two-day course was created to meet the growing demand from Scrum professionals looking to develop expertise in SAFe and meet the demands of enterprises relying on SAFe to build better software and systems.
SAFe ASM prepares Scrum Masters to take a leadership role in facilitating Agile team, program, and enterprise success in a SAFe implementation. They will learn facilitation of cross-team interactions in support of program execution and relentless improvement. The course will enhance their understanding of the Scrum paradigm with an introduction to scalable engineering and DevOps practices, and the application of Kanban to facilitate the flow of value. It will also provide them with a consistent approach to facilitating interactions with architects, product management, and other critical stakeholders in the larger program and enterprise contexts.
With this new addition, Scaled Agile now offers a portfolio of six professional credentials designed to meet the needs of Lean-Agile professionals from the very beginning of their learning path through their veteran years as they practice, consult, and train others in SAFe.
