Certified LeSS Practitioner
Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling agile 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 product development.
The Certified LeSS Practioner course is an in-depth course covering the LeSS principles, framework, rules, and guides. It provides essential information for adopting and improving LeSS to your product development group. The course contains an overview of LeSS, stories on LeSS adoptions, exercises and extensive LeSS Q&A to ensure we discuss the topics most of interest to the participants.
Want to learn more about how companies have implemented LeSS? Please visit the LeSS Case Studies page. Greg wrote the Case Study on Bwin.party, with a large site in Hyderabad where he and his local and global coaching team spent over a year. Greg also led the LeSS adoption at Alcatel-Lucent while working at Valtech, and has helped many large and distributed organizations succeed with agile at scale.
