Certified LeSS Practitioner: Principles to Practices
Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is an organizational design framework, aiming at de-scaling organizations through reducing complexity. LeSS is optimized for adaptiveness (agility) in the service of the highest-level value.
LeSS builds on top of Scrum and the Scrum principles such as empiricism and cross-functional self-managing teams. LeSS provides simple structural rules and guidelines on how to adopt Scrum in large product development with multiple teams.
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.
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 Scrum Master or a Professional Scrum Master course, or thoroughly reading Scrum introduction material such as the Scrum Primer and practicing Scrum.
