Basically, I would like to know if both are different or the same.

No, they are not the same.

There are three popular methods for scaling Scrum - LeSS, Nexus, and Scrum@Scale.

LeSS was developed in 2005 by Bas Vodde and Craig Larman. By 2014, they had established a company to offer courses, events, and coaching on their particular technique to scale Scrum.

Scrum@Scale is Scrum, Inc.'s (founded by Jeff Sutherland - a co-creator of Scrum) approach to scaling Scrum across multiple teams and the organization. As best I can tell, work on Scrum@Scale began sometime around 2006.

Nexus is's (founded by Ken Schwaber - a co-creator of Scrum) approach to scaling Scrum across multiple teams working on a single product. Nexus is the newest approach, having been released in 2015.

All three are strongly rooted in the Scrum Guide but have their own takes on the approaches and techniques to scale Scrum to multi-team contexts.
