Certified LeSS Practitioner 

Principles to Practices

28-30 October

9-17h Art Hotel Belgrade


Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling agile development to multiple teams. LeSS.works gives an overview . 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 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 Certified LeSS Practitioner course is for anyone who is involved in a LeSS effort.
Basic Scrum knowledge is expected and can be achieved by attending a Certified Scrum Master 
or a Professional Scrum Master course, or thoroughly reading Scrum introduction material
such as the Scrum Primer and practicing Scrum.

Training Description

The Certified LeSS Practitioner course provides the most practical and actionable approach to creating value through the scaling of Scrum related Agile in global enterprises and distributed teams. 

While LeSS is a simple framework to enable empirical process control, LeSS is packed with proven advice and practices for achieving value fast on large and complex projects.

It provides a start-to-finish approach for large initiatives across the entire project spectrum and lifecycle, starting from sprint planning to retrospective. 

Each of the topics includes an exploration of applying the practices using individual and team exercises. The exercises illustrate how to transfer the training into practice.

Every exercise ends with a debrief and a discussion, so that people can relate what they've learned to their own situation, and bring up questions and experiences to be addressed by the whole group.

All participants will be a Certified LeSS Practitioner and will get an account on less.works website and access additional information about LeSS, share course information and stay in contact with the other course participants and LeSS practitioners.
