Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) Workshop
Do you work on large-scale product development involving multiple teams, stakeholders, and geographies? If yes, you might be well familiar with the challenges such as dependencies, local optimization, functional silos, communication gaps, rapid changes, increased risk, etc. Large-scale brings in additional complexity, non-linear behavior, and risk to the product development.
Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling agile product development to multiple teams. LeSS builds on top of the Scrum principles such as empiricism, cross-functional self-managing teams and provides a framework for applying that at scale. It provides simple structural rules, guides, and experiments on how to adopt Scrum in the large-scale product development environment.
