During this 3-day highly-participative course we will explore a deep understanding of LeSS, Large-Scale Scrum, for lean & agile development with many teams working together on one product.
“It was inspiring to discuss Large-Scale Scrum. The content of the course was top-notch.” – Steve Alexander
Participants (senior managers, product developers, …) explore a deep understanding of LeSS, Large-Scale Scrum, for lean & agile development with many teams working together on one product. We explore adoption, new organizational design, systems thinking & optimization, the role of management, and concretely how to work together in a Sprint at scale in terms of coordination, architecture, planning, and more.
Critically, we explore the Big Idea of more with LeSS: simplifying & descaling over “scaling”, or… scaling product development by descaling the organization. Perhaps most importantly and interestingly, this course runs mostly as a series of “at giant whiteboards” deep-thinking exercises involving systems modeling in small teams to explore why, so that people can own the ideas by discovering them for themselves, rather than “renting” the ideas. A focus on why and owning not renting are important elements of LeSS and how it’s learned, and the trainer emphasizes this in the course learning experience.
(Aside, but noteworthy: Course runs until 18:00 on all 3 days; for certification, full attendance required)
