Learn how to scale scrum in your organisation 

Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling agile development to multiple teams. 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 LeSS course will teach you how to successfully  scale scrum in your organisation.

Ahmad Fahmy, an experienced LeSS expert and trainer will lead this course. Ahmad has an enormous amount of energy, enthusiasm and expertise and has worked for less.works since 2010 delivering large scale agile adoptions using the LeSS Framework.

Ahmad clearly knows his stuff (organisational change & LeSS). He is energised, enthusiastic and not afraid to share his experiences. Real world examples help make the theory come to life. Overall, recommended. – Craig Lowdon
