Experience true agility during a simulation building a product
Practice new thinking tools that guide you in your transformation
Quickly delivering value and innovating in ever-faster cycle times has become a key differentiator between good and great enterprises. Large product-development organizations are turning to agile principles and large-scale Scrum to sustainably deliver that innovation at a fast pace.
The key questions many large product development organizations face are:
How to apply what works well on a small scale to large scale developments?
What’s the design of an organization that optimizes for learning, agility and customer value?
Can I redesign my organization to create an environment to succeed in the long run?
Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is to organizations what Scrum is to teams: a simple, powerful, large-scale product development framework designed to evolve into something that fits perfectly within any unique context. LeSS builds on top of Scrum principles such as empiricism, cross-functional, self-managing teams, and provides a framework to apply them at scale. It presents simple structural rules and guidelines on how to adopt Scrum in large product development.
In this 3-day Certified LeSS Practitioner Training you will learn the LeSS rules, the principles, guides and experiments. Key learnings of this Certified LeSS Practitioner Course are:
Explain what LeSS is and what LeSS is not

The only prerequisite to the Certified LeSS Practitioner Course is basic Scrum knowledge. That can be picked up 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.
Certified LeSS Practitioner participants should review Scrum introduction material such as the Scrum Primer. Another great preparation for this Certified LeSS Practitioner Course is the Scrum Test on less.works. It’s strongly encouraged to do this test before attending the course.
Measures for face-to-face Certified LeSS Practitioner Training
The health of our participants has top priority. Hygiene measures are of course particularly important here:
Large rooms / distance: Our Certified LeSS Practitioner Trainings are carried out in particularly large rooms so that all participants could sit at enough distance from one another so that they do not need a mask at their own place.
Masks: Of course, we still value the exchange between the Certified LeSS Practitioner participants and interactive exercises, for this all participants need masks.
Disinfection: Dispensers for disinfectants are available at all times in the training rooms.
Ventilation: The rooms are permanently ventilated during training. If you are sensitive to drafts, we can take this into account when choosing a seat. We would also like to ask you to bring suitable clothing with you.
Food & drink: We offer each Certified LeSS Practitioner participant their own portions. There are no buffets.
We are monitoring the situation very closely. If it becomes necessary to convert a Certified LeSS Practitioner training course into online format, we will inform you about this immediately. You can then decide, free of charge, to reschedule your Certified LeSS Practitioner participation to another date.
If you have the necessary technical infrastructure, you may benefit much more from the online Certified LeSS Practitioner training.
