For more than one team
The basic courses about Scrum and Agile are mostly based on what happens when you have one team developing one product. But, as you know, reality is usually more complex than that: in your company you probably have several teams working on several products. So how do you deal with that? How do you organise a complex organisation in an agile way? To add to the confusion, you have probably heard that there are several different techniques to scale Agile to large organisations, and some seem quite opposite in the main ideas they use. So how could you chose what’s best for your company?
In this three-day training we will look at various frameworks for scaling agility and scrum by providing a basic taxonomy and the application areas for each method, comparing them in detail:
- Advantages and disadvantages
- Heuristics to choose one against the others
- Adoption strategies
- Type of support needed
- Usual pitfalls
The training is a mix of frontal lesson and practical activities directed to the integration of the learned content in the daily operations of the participants. We will use plenty of case studies, where possible coming from the participants.
The course is intended for managers, ScrumMasters and coaches working in large organisations and intending to transform it to agile.
- Single team-agile vs. large agile organisation
- Criteria for scaling
- A taxonomy of scaling frameworks
- Scaling techniques
