An Introduction to Large Scale Scrum (LeSS): Real life stories
This lecture aims at people who are not yet familiar with the LeSS framework.
I will explain what LeSS is, how LeSS relates to Scrum and what the key differences with Scrum are. I will touch upon the impact of LeSS adoptions and share with my experience working at various smaller and larger companies.
The audience needs to have understanding of Scrum
My technical background in development and infrastructure spans a period of more than 20 years, but more relevant are the 8 years I am working as a Scrum Master and Agile Coach. I worked on numerous projects in various international companies, mainly in the banking industry. Currently, I work at Backbase Amsterdam with 40 colleagues in the R&D department. I love playing guitar, Prince, and electronic music.

2018 - If you can draw the problem, you can solve it: Systems Thinking made practicalEN
When we try to solve complex organisational problems, we’re often like the six blind men describing an elephant: We focus only on the parts, convinced that we alone know the truth. We fail to see holistically how the parts interconnect to make up the whole.
Our systems thinking workshop gives you the tools to approach complex problems as systems, even if these complex problems are “soft problems” (such as fixing an unsafe organisational culture, undergoing an agile transformation or implementing a DevOps mindset).
