In this presentation, Bas Vodde shares the creation of LeSS and within that side-track on explaining better how LeSS works. LeSS is a lightweight (agile) framework for scaling Scrum to more than one team. It was extracted out of the experiences of Bas Vodde and Craig Larman while Scaling Agile development in multiple different types of companies, products and industries over the last ten years.
Resources on Scaling Agile frameworks like the Scaling Agile Framework (SAFe), LESS, Nexus, Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD), Scrums of Scrums, etc.
Agile development starts with small Scrum teams tackling small problems. After some initial successes the organization gets more ambitious, and tries to get more teams tackling bigger problems. At some point these endeavors run headlong into organizational finance and governance structures from a different era, designed with huge projects in mind, and it usually doesn’t end well.

The presentation demonstrates why SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) is the most widely adopted agile scaling framework. SAFe’s practices have evolved from Agile practices and methods, Lean product development, systems thinking, and observation of successful enterprises. This presentation introduces the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe version 4.5), including its core values, principles, and practices, along with a roadmap for implementation.
