Scaling Scrum: The Workshop

Scrum-EntInfographic-FINAL7-cropAre you concerned that cookie-cutter scaling methods won’t work in your company’s situation? Context is everything, and even methodologies that work very well in one context may fail spectacularly in another. The solution is to understand the principles behind successful scaling and have a common language to discuss these principles within the organization.

Join Scrum Inc. and Scrum Events for a daylong workshop on scaling Scrum beyond the team level and throughout the enterprise. Scrum Inc. COO Alex Brown will present and discuss the modular Scrum at Scale framework, which unlike other proscriptive methodologies allows for context-specific solutions to scaling. The modular architecture of the framework enables organizations to incrementally inspect and adapt their own structure without causing system-wide consequences. Participants will then work collaboratively through their organization’s unique scaling challenges.

This workshop will:

-Lay out the business case for a modular scaling framework

-Present an overall vision for modular scaled Scrum that spans the Team, Business Unit, and Enterprise levels to link vision with effective execution

-Share specific examples of different successful practices within each module

-Help attendees to work through their own scaling challenges in the context of the framework

Participants will not leave this session with a cookie-cutter answer for large-scale Scrum implementations. However, they will leave with tailored progress towards their scaling solution, and the experience will equip them to lead a productive conversation of what the organization really needs from scaling Scrum.

The course will be held in Munich with Scrum Events. Click here to register!

Jeff at EMC

Jeff at EMC

Last week, Jeff visited the storage giant EMC, a long time Scrum Inc. friend. He delivered the third iteration of his TedX Talk. The talk is a synopsis of the divergent experiences that helped Jeff create the first Scrum team at Easel in 1993 and is based on his new book, Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time. The presentation was extremely well received. In fact, Jeff has been invited back to inspire more EMC teams soon.

You can download the EMC Slides and watch the original talk here.
