    Learn with Craig Larman—the co-creator of LeSS—in this 3-day highly-participative course. Participants (senior managers, agile coaches, ...) get a thorough understanding of LeSS, Large-Scale Scrum, for scaling agile development to many teams working together on one product. In-depth, we explore adoption, new organizational design, systems thinking & optimization, the role of management, and very concretely how to work together in a Sprint at scale in terms of coordination, architecture, planning, and much more. The course includes an in-depth Q&A clinic with Craig Larman, based on his long experience with LeSS adoptions.

    In addition to course material, each participant will also receive 3 books on LeSS:

    Product Owner in LeSS In-Depth Special Topics: A Deep-Dive Q&A Clinic

    Although there are some constants in a LeSS adoption, there are many variations, due to myriad contexts. And there are many special-topic questions that participants have, usually variations of “When scaling Scrum, how do we…?” These questions range from “contracts to career path.” Therefore, a full day of this course is dedicated to a structured Q&A session that works through a group-prioritized list of burning issues and questions. Craig Larman, drawing on his many years of experience of actual LeSS adoptions, will dialog and explore solutions with the group.
