Scrum@Scale Seminar with Jeff Sutherland + Hendrik Kniberg December 2018 Stockholm

Scaling Scrum accross the enterprise is the current challenge. The Scrum@Scale Framework from Jeff Sutherland provides the light weighted framework to accomplish this task.

Great 'Scrum@Scale'-Seminar with Jeff Sutherland and Henrik Kniberg in Stockholm at the Crisp office - sharing knowledge and experience with other agile practitioners - supporting enterprises during the agile transition process journey.


Why Scrum@Scale?

Scrum was designed for a single team to be able to work at its optimal capacity while maintaining a sustainable pace. In the field, it was found that as the number of Scrum teams within an organization grew, the output (working product) and velocity of those teams began to fall (due to issues like cross-team dependencies and duplication of work). It became obvious that a framework for effectively coordinating those teams was needed in order to achieve linear scalability. Scrum@Scale is designed to accomplish this goal via its scale-free architecture.

By utilizing a scale-free architecture, the organization is not constrained to grow in a par- ticular way determined by a set of arbitrary rules; rather it can grow organically based on its unique needs and at a sustainable pace of change that can be accepted by the groups of individuals that make up the organization. The simplicity of the Scrum@Scale model is essential to a scale-free architecture and carefully avoids introducing extra complexity that will cause productivity per team to decrease as more teams are created.

Scrum@Scale is designed to scale across the organization as a whole: all departments, prod- ucts and services. It can be applied across multiple domains in all types of organizations in industry, government, or academia.
