AIM Consulting Hosts BeyondAgile Meetup & LeSS Co-Founder Craig Larman
Last week, AIM Consulting Seattle had the privilege of hosting a BeyondAgile Meetup for over 50 agilists and project management professionals. Attendees enjoyed food and drinks prior to listening to featured speaker Craig Larman, Co-Founder of LeSS (Large-Scale Scrum). His presentation focused on how large product groups can do more by adopting LeSS, and he began by exploring the purpose of LeSS, which is to expose the ineffectiveness of traditional large-scale organizational design. Craig then discussed how simplifying and streamlining a large product group through LeSS can help businesses optimize the gains in agility, learning, and value from Scrum.
