Large Scale Scrum Training (LeSS) in SoCal

In May 2016, Rocket Nine Solutions hosted Large Scale Scrum Training (LeSS) with Craig Larman in Southern California (Orange County in the greater Los Angeles area).

In this video, Scott Dunn, owner and CEO of Rocket Nine Solutions shares his impressions of our first Large Scale Scrum Training (LeSS) with Craig Larman.

Rocket Nine Solutions hosted a three-day LeSS practitioner workshop in May 2016. We had eighteen in attendance, many coaches, agilists, both from in the area and from out of town. If you’re interested in scaling and in more of a pure scrum approach, Large Scale Scrum Training (LeSS) is a great option. Craig Larman, author of four books on this topic, taught our class. He’ll be coming back again in September. We highly recommend it. The agile coaches had a lot of great things to say about it, and we were all challenged in our thinking. All the great things I’d heard from others about the Large Scale Scrum Training (LeSS), are absolutely true.

If you’re looking at scaling and you’re trying to help your organization as a ScrumMaster or an advanced ScrumMaster, you will find great tools for the toolbox. We got into systems thinking:

  • How do you lead a transformation
  • How do you prepare leadership and the organization for adoption

Large Scale Scrum and Scaling Frameworks

We have hosted the Scaled Agile Framework class a number of times. Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) is more of an approach that’s not as prescriptive and therefore organic. The teams need to learn how to solve those problems, so you’re going to dive deep into giving them thinking tools on how to do that and how to empower them to solve their own problems.

What roles are really necessary?

In the Certified ScrumMaster classes we do every month, one of the first questions is: Besides those three roles in scrum, ScrumMaster, product owner, and team; what about the project manager? the manager? etc? Those we tackle front-and-center on day one in the Large Scale Scrum Training (LeSS). If you’re interested in some of those things, you’re beyond one, two, three teams, Large Scale Scrum Training (LeSS) is something you definitely should take a look at. We highly recommend it. Feel free to check out the other videos on the site to find out more, and if you have any questions, contact us. We’ll be glad to help out. Thanks and good luck on your journey.
