Why is this course important?

The Certified LeSS Practitioner course is an in-depth course covering the LeSS principles, framework and rules, and guides.

It provides essential guidance for how to move from a Project driven to a Product Led organisation through using & improving LeSS

The course contains a deep dive into the LeSS framework through Lego, stories on LeSS adoptions, exercises and extensive LeSS Q&A to ensure we discuss the topics most interested in the participants.

The Certified LeSS Practitioner course is for anyone involved in a LeSS effort or is LeSS Curious.

    The Certified LeSS Practitioner course is for people in roles that support a LeSS adoption.

    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.

    All participants will be Certified LeSS practitioner and will get an account on the less.works website. Here they can find additional information about LeSS, share course information and stay in contact with the other course participants.

    Our trainers


    Passionate about organisational culture and design that enables the creation of value both for an organisation’s customers and its people, I want to know we are building the right product and building it in the right way.

    In recent years I have experimented with ways to balance an organisation’s desire for control, collaboration and innovation through educating, coaching and leading organisational transformations to get more with LeSS.

    The growth of people to be effective in achieving the organisations and their personal goals is the critical catalyst for this. As is coaching, training and mentoring people at all levels of the organisation.
