Large Scale Agile


Certified Less Practitioner (CLP®)

This is a two day, highly participative course to explore a deep understanding of Large Scale Scrum for lean and agile development with many teams working on one product. Although there is no compulsory pre-reading for this course but I suggest to go through on LeSS website https://less.works/ and get familiar with LeSS principle and Framework

In this 2 days, 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.

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 modelling 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 our trainers emphasize this in the course learning experience.
