The Certified LeSS Basics course is a brief introduction to the LeSS Framework. Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a descaling framework for agile development with 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 Certified LeSS Basics course provides a 1-day (2*4 hours) Overview of the framework and some of the essential concepts that it uses. It will help to determine whether LeSS is for you and/or your organisation or not.

The Certified LeSS Basics course is also for anyone who is involved in the effort of LeSS agile journey :)

Course Prerequisites

Scrum knowledge from training or working in Scrum Teams for a long time is expected (despite the title this is not a beginner's course). A concise understanding of the Scrum Guide, which means you should have read it thoroughly.

What about exams and assessments?

The course is assessed by the instructors during the course, there is no exam to be taken. This is a certification you earn through practice during the course.

What Equipment Will I Need?

If this is the online version you will need to install the Zoom application version, as the web version does not have all the features needed. You will also need access to the google docs suite and especially the tool called Jamboard.
