This is the Engineering Culture Podcast, from the people behind and the QCon conferences. In this podcast recorded at Agile 2019, Shane Hastie, Lead Editor for Culture & Methods, spoke to Bas Vodde, one of the formulators of Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) about how LeSS is designed to descale an organisation rather than scaling up to cope with complexity Why listen to this podcast: • LeSS is based on the idea of de-scaling and reducing complexity rather than scaling to cope with complexity • A characteristic of LeSS adoptions is that the concepts of projects and programs tend to completely disappear in favour of product-based working • With LeSS, you have always one Product Owner for the entire product. Product owners per team are considered to be an exceptionally bad idea from a LeSS perspective • LeSS is based on having largely stable, cross-functional teams working on customer centric functionality • LeSS is based on a set of ten principles which guide the approach, and then imperical feedback based on experiments and constant learning More on this: Quick scan our curated show notes on InfoQ You can also subscribe to the InfoQ newsletter to receive weekly updates on the hottest topics from professional software development.
