Many organizations - particularly large in scale, embark on product development initiatives involving hundreds, sometime thousands of team members. Large scale brings in additional complexity, non-linear behaviour, and risk. Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling agile product 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 scale product development.
This LeSS Framework for Large Scale Product Development Training is focused on Agile at scale. It covers the LeSS principles, framework, rules, and guides. It provides essential information for adopting LeSS to your product development group and benefiting from it. The training contains an overview of LeSS framework, Lean Principles applied at scale, exercises in scaling, LeSS adoption case studies, and essential LeSS focused Q&A to ensure that we discuss the topics that are of most interest to the participants.
This is a two day training. On the first day the focus is on the LeSS Framework Overview, the LeSS Principles, product definition, roles and organizing value around feature teams. The second day focuses on managing the product development with extended Definition of Done, multi-team co-ordination, organizational design aspects and techniques to effectively adopt LeSS.
