Certified LeSS Basics

Wielka Brytania

Description :

With the latest global developments, we are pleased to say we are experimenting with Remote Certified LeSS Basics Courses.

All of my online LeSS courses come with the offer of 90 minutes of my time to:

  • Deliver a talk on a LeSS/Agile topic of your choice followed by a Q&A
  • A group coaching or mentoring session
  • A workshop where we will use Systems Modelling to explore a topic of relevance to you or your organisation right now
  • 1-2-1 Coaching or mentoring

We are all having to find new ways to work and be increasingly flexible (for example supporting family members & the community) so I wanted this course to be flexible too...

The course has been designed from the ground up for remote delivery using tried and tested techniques.

Your trainer Ben Maynard is the only Certified LeSS Trainer, experienced Certified Training From the Back of the Room trainer and Professional Coach offering the Certified LeSS Basic courses in London.

Ben has used all of his skills plus, his experience of over 10 LeSS/LeSS Huge Adoptions and a wealth of additional research into adult education to craft an engaging and compelling remote experience.

What people say about Ben's training

"Ben's extensive experience, his ability to communicate in an inclusive and engaging manner, articulate explanations, and his humility and style."

“The flow of the training was catered to our needs. Ben very engaging throughout the whole course - One of the best training courses I have attended.”

"Ben brings LeSS to life by talking about his many adoption experiences and demonstrates how difficult we make working lives through employing traditional multi-layered approaches."

The course has 2 modules, running at 09:30 -13:30 (GMT) each day:

Module 1 - Why LeSS, Product, Product Ownership

Module 2 - Teams, Systems & Adoptions


Each module is 4 hours long and you will have to attend all 4 modules in order to be certified.

One of the things I am most excited about is giving people this flexibility and also helping people increase their connections within our community (as you may have completely different people in each session). Whatever you purchase if you cannot make a session we can flip to the alternative time for that day.

If you are facing financial difficulties, you would like it over a shorter time period or you would like a private session for 4-10 people then please contact me directly.

Any questions please contact Ben Maynard via hello@sheev.co.uk, LinkedIn or the LeSS Website


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 Basics course is a brief introduction into the LeSS Framework. It provides a 1-day overview of the framework and some of the essential concepts that it uses.

It will help determining whether LeSS is for you but for LeSS adoptions, we’d recommend to follow it up with a LeSS Practitioner course.

The Certified LeSS basics course is for anyone who is involved in a LeSS effort or is curious about the framework.
