Certified LeSS Practitioner: Principles to Practices

Need to scale agile and Scrum to large product development groups and multiple teams? Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a product development framework that extends Scrum with scaling rules and guidelines without losing its original purpose. It builds on Scrum principles - like empiricism and cross-functional, self-managing teams - to decrease organizational complexity. This is a three-day training taught only in English.
