What People Are Saying About SAFe Advanced Scrum Master

Being at a SAFe Client, I found the opportunity extremely beneficial to expand knowledge, see gaps in processes, and see areas for improvement. The information is crucial for any role. Real world examples were especially helpful.

The Leading SAFe class provided a nice balance for those that have SAFe backgrounds, as well as those that may have had little to no exposure to SAFe practices.
