Online
Tokyo
Japan

Description :

The objective is to understand what it takes to continuously deliver a large/complex product while reducing organizational complexity—at the same time, being able to bring real improvement without compromising the Agile principles.

Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a simple framework for product 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 Provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner course is an in-depth course covering the LeSS principles, framework, 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 the interest to the participants.

Audience & Prerequisite 

The Provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner course is for anyone involved in a software product delivery. 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.
