Certified LeSS Practitioner
Principles to Practices
LeSS is an organizational design approach, aiming at simplifying organizations through reducing complexity. LeSS is optimized for the highest-level adaptiveness (agility) in the service of the highest-level value.
LeSS builds on top of Scrum and the Scrum principles such as empiricism and cross-functional self-managing teams. LeSS provides simple structural rules and guidelines on how to adopt Scrum in large product development with multiple teams.
The Certified 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.
