Certified LeSS Practitioner Course with Craig Larman

Learn with Craig Larman—the co-creator of LeSS—in this 3-day highly-participative course. Participants (senior managers, product developers, ...) explore a deep understanding of LeSS, Large-Scale Scrum, for lean & agile development with many teams working together on one product. We explore adoption, new organizational design, systems thinking & optimization, the role of management, and concretely how to work together in a Sprint at scale in terms of coordination, architecture, planning, and more.

(Aside, but noteworthy: Course runs until 17:30 on all 3 days, including day 3; for certification, full attendance required)

Critically, we explore the Big Idea of more with LeSS: simplifying & descaling over "scaling", or... scaling product development by descaling the organization.

Perhaps most importantly and interestingly, this course runs mostly as a series of "at giant whiteboards" deep-thinking exercises involving systems modeling in small teams to explore why, so that people can own the ideas by discovering them for themselves, rather than "renting" the ideas. A focus on why and owning not renting are important elements of LeSS and how it's learned, and Craig emphasizes this in the course learning experience.

Join Larman for a deep dive into more with LeSS, based on his long experience with LeSS adoptions.

In addition to course material, each participant will also receive 2 books on LeSS:

    Large-Scale Scrum: More with LeSS
    Practices for Scaling Lean & Agile Development: Large, Multisite & Offshore Development with LeSS
    Scaling Lean & Agile Development: Thinking and Organizational Tools for Large-Scale Scrum


This course will be held in English.
