NICF- Certified LeSS Practitioner - Principles to Practices

Overview

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.

The Certified LeSS Practioner course is an in-depth course covering the LeSS principles, framework and rules and guides. It provides essential information for adopting and improving LeSS to your product development group. The course contains an overview of LeSS including examples on LeSS adoptions, exercises and extensive LeSS Q&A sessions to focus on topics that are in the interest and relevance to participants. 

All participants will be awarded ‘Certified LeSS Practitioner’ after attending this course.

This course is part of the Agile Series offered by NUS-ISS.
