Certified LeSS Practitioner | Remi Kok

I wanted to thank you again for an inspiring course. It was three long days with a lot of good practices. Loved the discussions and the contribution from Cesario’s experience. I learned that scaling up Scrum is made possible through the LeSS (Huge) Framework without losing the Scrum principles. For me there where a few great eye-openers. Going to use it that’s for sure.

Thanks Cesario for a great time.
