Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) is an innovative framework for scaling agile projects. The Certified LeSS Practitioner - Principles To Practices course provides the resources and knowledge to apply LeSS in action.
LeSS is a practical and actionable approach to creating value through the scaling of Scrum related Agile in global enterprises and with distributed teams.
The training is packed with proven advice and best practices for achieving value fast on large and complex projects. It covers a start-to-finish approach across the entire project spectrum and lifecycle, starting from sprint planning to retrospective. LeSS enables the scaling of:
- Scrum for large-scale projects
- Requirements, planning, and product management
- Design and architecture
- Management of defects and interruptions
- Scrum across multisite and offshore projects
- Change strategies and organisational designs
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 and 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.
