LeSS Newsletter - August 2015August 18, 2015
We’d like to share some of the things we’ve been working on over the last couple of months. which we hope will be of use to you.
Two weeks ago, we decided to publish the draft version of Chapter 2 of the upcoming LeSS book. I know some of you are waiting for the book, and we hope to finish it around the end of the year. It has been a long process again, but we are getting really excited about the result.
Bas and Craig were in the Agile2015 conference to do a couple of talks. During that time, we got interviewed a couple of times. Two of these have been published. You can find them at:
Both Bas and Craig did some talks that have been recorded and are available:
- The Story of LeSS by Bas Vodde at Xebicon 2015
- Cognitive Bias, Systems Optimization, and Component Teams by Craig in Norway

We've started the Certified Coaching Company program and have the first couple of companies who became coaching companies. You can find the list of current LeSS Coaching Companies here. Certified Coaching Companies have published involvement with a LeSS case study, has been evaluated for congruence to LeSS values, and have proven track-record of keeping and growing coaches. The next couple months, we'll be extending this with the Certified LeSS Coaches, which are coaches working inside Coaching Companies with LeSS experience.
We've done loads of improvements to the LeSS site and will continue to improve it in functionality and usability. Feedback or suggestions about the site are more than welcome!
