Certified LeSS Basics

Insights addressing the challenges of agility at scale


The Certified LeSS Basics course is a short but insight-packed introduction to the highly regarded LeSS and LeSS Huge scaling frameworks.

This course is for anyone curious about how LeSS is different from other approaches to scaling such as SAFe, the so-called Spotify Model etc. Being informed about this allows you to provide advice about the choice of scaling approach at work or to decide whether to take a 3 day Certified LeSS Practitioner course yourself.

Don’t be fooled by the word “Large” in the “Large Scale Scrum”. LeSS can be used with 2 small teams and upwards working on a single product offering. LeSS is not only for tech. product companies. The truth is that many banks and insurance companies use LeSS.

The course includes examples and first-hand stories from scaled Agile adoptions including recent in-person and completely remote LeSS adoptions in Australia.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course you will be able to describe with confidence how LeSS deals with some of the most common issues when scaling Agile development. This includes how to;

  • structure your teams to maximise their ability to work on the highest customer value at scale,
  • eliminate scope and date agreements i.e. The Contract Game,
  • eliminate painful dependencies rather than just manage them,
  • improve agility well beyond the rigidity of quarterly (PI) planning cycles,
  • communicate and coordinate between teams whilst minimising centralised meetings and without coordination roles, and
  • achieve agility by simplifying your organisation rather than relabelling the current organisation with agile-sounding terms.
