Duration: 1 to 3 days

Description: Are you struggling to scale agile for your company or teams? Are you aware of a scaled solution but don’t know how to start implementing it?

Agile is a solution for delivering working increments on a timely basis. Used properly, it can be a powerful methodology to help satisfy customers, increasing their engagement in the project, and also enhancing a project team’s delivery capability. To get these benefits, the teams need to be the right size. Typically, teams should not consist of more than 5-9 people, which presents problems when an organization needs to scale agile across the enterprise.

Why does an organization need to scale agile? The primary reason is that teams are not always built to the needs of agile, so doing agile on projects with larger teams and greater complexity can be difficult. Rather than turning to another methodology, though, it is possible to take advantage of frameworks for scaling agile. Several such frameworks exist, and in this presentation, several frameworks, including Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD), Scrum at Scale, and Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) will be explored. Particular terms of each methodology, as well as some of the common terms, will be discussed. The challenges of scaling agile, and ways to get around them, will also be discussed.

By attending this course, you will learn what is involved with scaling agile and when companies should implement a scaled solution. You will learn about some leading frameworks, including SAFe and Scrum at Scale, and will leave with more knowledge and skills to choose a framework and successfully scale agile.
