Large Scale Scrum (LeSS)

Course Description

The Certified ScrumMaster® (CSM) and Certified Scrum Product Owner® (CSPO) classes focus on single team Scrum. But what if you have a large product with multiple teams all working on the same code base? How do you address the team coordination logistics and the larger organizational issues that naturally arise?

This course immerses participants in in-depth discussions of how to use the Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) framework to address these issues. We will examine a minimal set of additional roles, rules, artifacts, meetings, thinking tools and practices that are designed to help you scale Scrum successfully.

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 LeSS Practitioner 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.

The LeSS Practitioner course is for anyone who is involved in a LeSS effort.

Certified ScrumMasters (or Product Owners) who successfully complete this course and the exam will have an additional qualification in Scaling Scrum added to their base Scrum Alliance certification.
