We’re even more pleased with the fact, that from the beginning of 2018 SA officially announce adding Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) training to its portfolio.

LeSS is a framework for developing Agile organizations based on Scrum values, principles and rules. It was defined by Craig Larman and Bas Vodde after a decade of consulting in many organizations. Their observations are collected in three books and at less.works site, where you can find detailed information, large amount of case studies, presentations and additional resources.

ProCognita has a pleasure to organize the second one twice in 2017. Along with the partnership with Scrum Alliance, LeSS introduces one-day Certified LeSS Basics course.
