Certified LeSS for Basics

Overview of LeSS


LeSS is an organizational design approach, aiming at simplifying organizations through reducing complexity. LeSS is optimized for highest-level adaptiveness (agility) in the service of the highest-level value.

LeSS builds on top of Scrum and the Scrum principles such as empiricism and cross-functional self-managing teams. LeSS provides simple structural rules and guidelines on how to adopt Scrum in large product development with multiple teams.

The Certified LeSS Basics course is a brief introduction into the LeSS Framework. It provides a 1-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 a LeSS Practitioner course.

Basic Scrum knowledge is expected and can be achieved by attending a Certified Scrum Master or a Professional Scrum Master course, or thoroughly reading Scrum introduction material such as the Scrum Primer and practicing Scrum.

*the CLB is available as a 1-day onsite or a 2-day online course with 4 hours each day

Trainings are oriented on the methods of “Training from the back of the room”, as well as the effect of team learning over individual learning.
