Benefits of the CAS-S1 Scaling Certification

Ramp up the results of your agile efforts

Unlike prescriptive scaling frameworks, the CAS-S1 course equips you with the skills and knowledge to help you identify and explore principle-informed patterns that apply to your organization's unique and evolving context. 

In this course, you will:

  • Develop the skills and mindset needed to consider an approach to scaling
  • Align your organizational principles with appropriate scaling patterns
  • Understand the need to evolve your scaling approach
  • Recognize the role of patterns in frameworks (including LeSS, SAFe, Spotify, DAD, etc.), improving the effectiveness of frameworks
  • Explore the use of 'scaffolding' to aid your organization in moving in the desired direction
  • Become a member of the world’s largest global community of agilists with opportunities to connect with peers, mentors, and subject matter experts

Pair the agile scaling course with the LeSS framework

CAS-S1 pairs well with LeSS courses available through Scrum Alliance  course search. The skills you learn in CAS-S1 can help you apply LeSS across your organization. In fact, what you learn in CAS-S1 supports your ability to use any framework or even aspects of multiple frameworks.

Note: LeSS courses do not result in a certification from Scrum Alliance and are issued by The LeSS Company B.V. However, LeSS courses listed on the Scrum Alliance course search are provided by Scrum Alliance trainers. Participation also counts toward Scrum Education Units needed to renew your Scrum Alliance certifications.
