Certified LeSS Practitioner®

LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum) Practitioner course provides simple structural rules and guidelines on adopting Scrum in large development efforts and is also 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 those at scale.

The Certified LeSS Practitioner course is a three-day highly interactive, in-depth course covering the LeSS principles, framework, rules, and guides. It provides essential information for adopting and continuously improving LeSS in your organisation using various thinking tools, organisational tools and action tools.

The course contains an overview of LeSS, stories of LeSS adoptions, exercises and extensive Q&A sessions to ensure that the topics of greatest interest to participants are investigated in detail.
