SAFe ScrumXP for Teams




Our two-day SAFe ScrumXP for Teams course goes well beyond Scrum. It teaches Lean thinking tools, 

roles, processes, and the software engineering practices necessary to achieve the code quality you 
need to scale Scrum to your enterprise business context. The course is intended for new teams in an 
enterprise agile adoption program or can be used to re-baseline existing Scrum teams as required for 
scaling. The course consists of lecture, experiential activities, and exercises to begin building actual team backlogs 
in preparation for the agile transformation. By the end of the course, teams will be ready for their first 
program-level release planning meeting, part of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) Agile Release Train 
(ART). The course begins with the principles of scaling: Lean thinking tools, Agile development practices at 
scale, and an overview of the Scaled Agile Framework. Following this, teams learn the best practices for 
building quality software in a timebox. 
Learning Objectives 
By the end of this course, attendees will be able to: 
 Form their teams (Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and developers/testers) in an enterprise context by 
understanding the team, program, and enterprise roles; operating under enterprise governance; and 
applying lean and agile principles 
 Operate within timeboxes to incrementally build and deliver high quality software 
 Continuously improve their team and the program through the application of lean principles and agile 
practices at scale 
 Build higher quality enterprise software faster through the application of agile software 
engineering practices 
 Work effectively with Product and Program Management as part of an Agile Release Train to 
deliver complex enterprise solutions 
Course Structure 
Through lecture, experiential activities, and exercises, teams will learn: 
Team Structure: High performing agile teams, the Scrum Master role, and the Product Owner role. At 
scale, teams, Scrum Masters, and Product Owners have additional responsibilities and challenges. 
Building Backlogs: Writing user stories and other backlog items, sizing and prioritizing using lean 
economics via Weighted Shortest Job First, writing acceptance criteria, and building acceptance tests. At 
scale, team backlogs are part of the enterprise backlog model for integrating with the program and portfolio. 
Sprint Execution: Planning, backlog grooming, tracking, demoing, and continuous improvement. At 
scale, these include team-level and program-level ceremonies and events. 
Software Engineer Practices: Strategies to avoid "waterfalling” a sprint, TDD, ATTD, automated testing, 
and continuous integration. At scale, technology and practices must also facilitate distributed development.
