The SAFe® Advanced Scrum Master (SASM) is the next step in the Scrum Master’s learning journey.

The SAFe Advanced Scrum Master (SASM) certification course is especially designed for the current Scrum Masters to take up leadership roles in facilitating Agile teams, programs, and enterprise success in a SAFe implementation. The course covers facilitation of cross-team interactions in support of the 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.
