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). gives an overview. 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 online provisional Certified LeSS (pCLP) Practitioner - is an in-depth course covering the LeSS principles, framework and rules, and guides. It provides essential information for adopting and improving LeSS to 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 most of interest to the participants are being discussed.

Each participant is expected to attend all sessions. Light homework assignment should be expected in-between sessions.

The 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, information recommended below, as well as practicing Scrum.

This course is focused on delivering and sharing LeSS knowledge, similar to the in-person Certified LeSS Practitioner course. Thus this course is useful for people who want to learn more in-depth about LeSS, especially people currently in a LeSS adoption.

However, please note that pCLP does not offer same experience as an in-person CLP, due to the differences explained here. As such, instead of 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).

Note: Please, note that if you plan on attending the course with colleagues that are also involved in LeSS adoption (same organisation) or plan on requesting pCLP to be delivered privately (internally), you may want to consider this LeSS learning journey.

Still, 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 that initially took CLP.
