I've recently finished the SAFe Advanced Scrum Master course and successfully passed the exam and now I can say that I am a Certified SAFe® 5 Advanced Scrum Master!

Why did I take this challenge?
Primarily to become a better Agile Coach. For greater understanding and conscious application of agile techniques on a larger scale. How to facilitate, enable, and coach in a multi-team environment, in ART. Adding to this is the improvement of skills in building communities of practice to support high-performing teams and in leading distributed teams effectively in remote environments.
