Certified Large-Scale Scrum Basics with Ben Maynard


  2 days


Want to learn a framework for scaling agile development to multiple teams?

Large-Scale Scrum (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 Basics® course is a brief introduction into the LeSS Framework. It provides a 2-day overview of the framework and some of the essential concepts that it uses.

It will help determining whether LeSS is for you but for LeSS adoptions, we’d recommend to follow it up with the Certified LeSS Practitioner®.

This course will be offered virtually over 2 half‑day sessions of 3.5 hours each day

Our virtual workshops offer the same expert-led, hands-on experience we've offered since 2013 — accessible from the comfort of your own home (office).

You'll join Ben and participants from around the globe in a virtual classroom where you'll utilise a collaboration tools like Zoom and Slack to begin your Large-Scale Scrum journey.
