NYC Large Scale Scrum Meetup (LeSS), the very first created and the biggest one in the world, will be hosting an event with LeSS co-creator Craig Larman.
[Craig will be in town this week teach Large Scale Scrum Practitioner (CLP) course.]
As usual, Craig's session will be an open forum with massive Q&A about LeSS guides, experiments and adoption stories
MANY THANKS to our friends and colleagues from MORGAN STANLEY for generously providing a venue for this event!!!! There will be Morgan Stanley HR/Recruiting on-site. People will be able to explore career opportunities.

Craig Larman is the co-creator of LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum) with his friend and colleague Bas Vodde. He works as an organizational design consultant, introducing LeSS with executive teams for very large and multisite product development (often, HW-SW systems). He also works with product management for highly complex product definitions, and hands-on as an embedded-systems legacy-code C and C++ TDD coach with feature teams, to keep in touch with the real work and workers.
Although one of the very first LeSS trainers and CSTs, he practices and encourages a focus on doing over teaching.
He is the co-author of several books on scaling lean & agile development, including:
-Large-Scale Scrum: More with LeSS
-Scaling Lean & Agile Development: Thinking & Organizational Tools for
-Practices for Scaling Lean & Agile Development: Successful Large,
-Multisite & Offshore Product Development with Large-Scale Scrum

Craig has also served as chief scientist at Valtech, with a division in Bengaluru where together they evolved LeSS for agile offshore development.
Craig holds a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in computer science from beautiful SFU in Vancouver, BC, with research emphasis in artificial intelligence (having very little of his own).
