Certified LeSS (Large Scale Scrum) Practitioner

What is this course?

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 Practitioner (CLP) course is an in-depth programme covering the LeSS principles, framework and rules, and guides. It provides essential guidance on how to move from a Project Driven to a Product Led organisation through using, and improving, LeSS. The course contains a deep dive into the LeSS framework through Lego, stories on LeSS adoptions, exercises and extensive LeSS Q&A to ensure that we discuss the topics which are most interesting, and valuable, to the participants.
