Large-Scale Scrum Certifications


Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) builds on top of the scrum principles, such as empiricism and cross-functional self-managing teams. It provides a framework for applying those principles at scale, not by adding more complexity on top of your existing organization, but by dramatically simplifying it so that you can be agile rather than do agile. It provides simple structural rules and guidelines on how to adopt scrum in large product development. As a scaling framework, LeSS is one of many approaches to expanding agile across an enterprise. LeSS courses pair well with Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Skills - Scaling 1 in which you'll learn how get the most out of your agile scaling investments.


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 our highly-vetted Scrum Alliance providers. Participation also counts toward Scrum Education Units (SEUs) needed to renew your Scrum Alliance certifications.
