Course Description:

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 Practitioner 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.

Want to learn more about how companies have implemented LeSS? Please visit the LeSS Case Studies page.

The Certified LeSS Practitioner course is for anyone who is, or will be involved in a LeSS effort.

Basic Scrum knowledge is expected and can be achieved by attending a Scrum.org Professional Scrum Master course, or thoroughly reading Scrum introduction material such as the Scrum Guide or the the Scrum Primer and practicing Scrum.
