Why is this course “Provisional” for an Online event?
The main differences between the provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner and the in-person Certified LeSS Practitioner is this:
- The provisional is online and the in-person one is not (duh…).
- Thus typical drawbacks of online events such as harder to keep attention, more interruption, technical problems, etc.
- While also having the advantages of online, such as not having to travel, allowing it to be spread in multiple sessions, etc.
- The informal cross-participant discussion tends to be less effective leading to less experience sharing between students.
Because of these differences, we do NOT provide a Certified LeSS Practitioner event that is online. However, because a similar content can be taught and can be useful for people, especially those involved in LeSS adoptions, we will have the same content online in this course called provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner (pCLP).
Why a LeSS Course?
LeSS is to the organization what Scrum is to the team: a simple, powerful, large-scale product development framework designed to evolve into something that fits perfectly with any unique context.
Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is a framework for scaling agile 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 and guidelines on how to adopt Scrum in large product development.
If you are not moving at the speed of the marketplace you’re already dead – you just haven’t stopped breathing yet. – Jack Welch
Consequently, organizations need to redesign their structures to cope with the phenomenon and increase their capability to move faster than competition, incorporate new technology, learn new skills…
The organization structure in which most of us operate today can be quite an obstacle to respond adequately to a fast-changing business environment. In fact, traditional organization structures are not designed to deal with a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) world. This leads to employees feeling disengaged from their companies, and to companies being outpaced by their competition.
LeSS will give you exactly that competitive advantage!

What you will receive
When you attend a provisional Certified LeSS Practitioner, you will receive an account on the LeSS site, access to the LeSS books and other learning material that is traditionally only accessible for Certified LeSS Practitioners and Certified LeSS for Executives. You will be able to renew that every two years, exactly the same as a Certified LeSS Practitioners.

Couple of words from the creators of LeSS
Jurgen is one if the first Certified LeSS Trainers. He has a broad hands-on experience with LeSS adoptions from medical to telecom.
One great thing about Jurgen is his broad knowledge and his ability to strengthen LeSS with other great ideas such as Innovation Games and Management 3.0
Jurgen has an extraordinary and sensitive ability to help people see, and to own their insights. That quality, combined with his deep experience that spans from large-scale organizational design to startups, is a wonderful and rather unique combination. I am honored that a person of his calibre has joined as one of the first LeSS trainers.
