What is this course?

Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling Agile development to multiple teams.

The Certified LeSS Practitioner course is an in-depth course covering the LeSS principles, framework, rules and guides. It provides essential information for adopting and continuously improving LeSS in your product development group using various thinking tools, organisational tools and action tools. The course contains an overview of LeSS, stories on LeSS adoptions, exercises and extensive Q&A sessions to ensure topics most of interest to the participants are discussed.
