Provisional Certified Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) Practitioner - Online

12 Online sessions spread over multiple days. This online adventure is spread over a course of many days where we schedule 10 sessions of each +/-3 hours to guide you through all pCLP materials and exercises.

The provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner workshop is an online version of the in-person Certified LeSS Practitioner. It is NOT finished by a CLP certification but a provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner badge (instead of a normal one).

NOTE: We currently do NOT provide a Certified LeSS Practitioner event that is online. However, because similar content can be taught and can be useful for people, especially those involved in LeSS adoptions, we will have the same content online in this course called provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner (pCLP).

Why a LeSS Course?

LeSS is to the organization what Scrum is to the team: a simple, powerful, large-scale product development framework designed to evolve into something that fits perfectly with any unique context.

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.

Consequently, organizations need to redesign their structures to cope with the phenomenon and increase their capability to move faster than competition, incorporate new technology, learn new skills...

The organization structure in which most of us operate today can be quite an obstacle to respond adequately to a fast-changing business environment. In fact, traditional organization structures are not designed to deal with a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) world. This leads to employees feeling disengaged from their companies, and to companies being outpaced by their competition.

LeSS will give you exactly that competitive advantage!
