Description

Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework designed to decrease organizational complexity while scaling agile development methods across multiple teams.  LeSS works with the principles, elements and purpose of Scrum and provides a framework to apply them on a larger scale. Structural rules and guidelines are laid out to create ‘more with LeSS’, solving problems and challenges using simple solutions.

Certified LeSS Basics course is a basic introductory course that gives an overview of the LeSS framework and its foundational concepts and principles. You will get to understand the applications and their impact, and can decide whether LeSS is the best fit for your organizational needs. The training is led by a certified LeSS practitioner who has significant experience in the field. On successful completion of the course, you will receive a course participation certificate.

Very well conducted. Proactive management from the moderator, many exercises, hence quite practical, minimizing theoretical overload. Very pleased with the learning, for new starters as well as more experienced participants. Great experience sharing.

Attended workshop in February 2018

The experience over the two-day course was fantastic. It was not a dry explanation of the Scrum framework. Instead, a practical, example driven 2 days where we worked through all elements of the Scrum framework. I would have no hesitation in recommending Marco Mulder as a Scrum Master trainer or as a business Scrum coach within a commercial environment. His experience in this field was clear and impressive.

Knowledge Hut experience has been very good, this is my second registration with them directly and had total 3 registrations with them. The Trainer, Venue, Course material, Food and other logistics are well organized and managed. Special thanks to Lalit who takes extra effort to help and coordinate on everything. I am happy to take up other courses offered with Knowledge Hut and recommend others also to consider.

Marco is a brilliant Scrum coach. I had the pleasure to attend Certified Scrum Master training with Marco as a trainer. I was particularly impressed by Marco's hands on experience that sets him as a captivating knowledgeable trainer. Marco has a very unique approach as a trainer in which he actively engages all participants regardless of their background. And I still keep the really inspiring book on SCRUM he gave to me along with the planning poker cards we used to do task estimation! As a Scrum coach, Marco earns my highest recommendation.
