Certified LeSS Practitioner: Principles to Practices

Crowne Plaza Bangkok Lumpini Park
952 Rama IV Road

Description :

Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a organizational design system for agile product development with multiple teams. It consists of ten principles, a set of guides, rules for structural change, and experiments for context-specific advise. The rules create a structure for adaptive product development and the guides help with day-to-day support.

The Certified LeSS Practitioner course is an in-depth course covering the LeSS principles, 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 Q&A to ensure we discuss the topics most of interest to the participants.

The Certified LeSS Practitioner 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 or a Professional ScrumMaster course, or thoroughly reading Scrum introduction material such as the Scrum Primer and practicing Scrum.
