Identify the differences among the Scrum, Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) and LeSS Huge frameworks, while exploring the fundamental principles of LeSS. LeSS is a framework for scaling agile development to multiple teams. LeSS builds on top of the Scrum principles such as empiricism, and cross-functional self-managing teams and caters 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 Practitioner is an in-depth programme covering the LeSS principles, framework and rules and guides. It provides essential information for adopting and improving LeSS in your product development group. The programme offers an overview of LeSS, stories on LeSS adoptions and exercises and extensive LeSS Q&A, ensuring that you discuss the topics that are of most interest.
