Certified LeSS Basics®

Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling agile development across multiple teams. LeSS builds on Scrum principles such as empiricism and cross-functional self-managing teams, and provides a framework for applying that at scale. With its simple structural rules and its principles, LeSS guides you in how to adopt Scrum in large-scale product development.

The Certified LeSS Basics online remote training course is a brief introduction to the LeSS Framework. It provides training in the framework and some of the essential concepts that it uses. This online course is suitable for anyone who is involved in a LeSS effort

For a deeper understanding of LeSS as well as guidance and tools for LeSS adoptions, we’d recommend you follow up with a Certified LeSS Practitioner course.

The Certified LeSS Basics training is delivered in collaboration with our Training Partner, Sheev.

This course is accredited by LeSS.Works and on successful completion of this class, participants will receive the Certified LeSS Basics certification.

The course was extremely informative. It was well run, high level of participant engagement and not too formal. The course helped me to understand LeSS far more – the adoption, how to make it work and, equally important, how organisations fail with Agile.
