Founded by Bas Vodde and Craig Larman, The LeSS Company was created in 2014 to promote Large Scale Scrum (LeSS), offering certified LeSS training and promoting LeSS coaching.
The LeSS company provides support for adopting Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) within product development. It provides a coach and trainer network of approved coaches and trainers, helping to find the right person for your organisation.
We deliver our certified LeSS training courses online and in person. These courses are delivered by our experienced Certified Scrum Trainers (CST’s) and can be delivered publicly or as an in house, private training course.
