Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling agile development to multiple teams that work on the same product, from the same product backlog (prioritized by the same Product Owner). 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 and guidelines on how to adopt Scrum in large product development.
The Certified LeSS Practitioner (CLP) (in-person) course is an in-depth course covering the LeSS principles, framework and rules, and guides. It provides essential information for adopting and improving LeSS in your product development group. The course contains an overview of LeSS, stories on LeSS adoptions, exercises and extensive LeSS Q&A to ensure that the topics of most interest to the participants are being discussed.
The Provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner (pCLP) does not offer same experience as an in-person CLP. As such, instead of the Certified LeSS Practitioner certificate, students will gain a provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner (pCLP) certificate. pCLP can be upgraded to CLP by either visiting an in person CLP course at later point, or participating in LeSS and Learn mentoring workshop (also, in-person).

The Certified LeSS for Executives (in-person) course is an in-depth course covering the (1) LeSS principles, (2) adoption, (3) the role of management, and (4) broadly, what a senior manager needs to know and do to help. The course includes stories on LeSS adoptions, exercises, and extensive Q&A to ensure we discuss the topics most of interest to the participants.
The Certified LeSS for Executives course is for people in manager roles that support a LeSS effort. And since a change to LeSS involves both Product Management and R&D (or “business” and “IT”) together, senior representatives of both groups will want to attend together.
The Certified LeSS Practitioner and provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner course is for anyone who is involved in a LeSS effort. Basic Scrum knowledge is expected and can be achieved by attending a Certified Scrum Master or a Professional Scrum Master course, or thoroughly reading Scrum introduction material such as the Scrum Primer, as well as practicing Scrum.
