Trainer Ran Nyman
Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling agile development to multiple teams. 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 Practioner 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 a large agile adoption.

I’d recommend this training most to the CIO’s and CTO’s who are currently struggling with their technology organization to the meet the urgent needs of its internal or external customers. LeSS training gives a lot of new ideas on how to increase the capability of organization, while giving its knowledge workers a lot of new opportunities to become proud about their daily work.
