Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling agile development to multiple teams. LeSS.works gives an overview. LeSS builds on top of the Scrum principles such as empiricism, cross-functional self-managing teams and provides a framework for applying that at scale. It provides simple structural rules and guidelines on how to adopt Scrum in large product development.
The Certified LeSS Practioner course is an in-depth course covering the LeSS principles, framework and rules, and guides. It provides essential information for adopting and improving LeSS to your product development group. The course contains an overview of LeSS, stories on LeSS adoptions, exercises and extensive LeSS Q&A to ensure we discuss the topics most of interest to the participants.
After the course you will be a “Certified LeSS Practitioner” and will get an account on less.works. Here you can find additional information about LeSS, share course information and stay in contact with the other course participants. In addition, you’ll get access to the draft of the new upcoming book “Large-Scale Scrum: More with LeSS”.
This course is for anyone who is involved in a LeSS effort. Basic Scrum knowledge is expected and can be achieved by attending a Certified ScrumMaster course, or thoroughly reading Scrum introduction material, such as the “Scrum Primer” and “Practicing Scrum”.
