Scrum at Scale Part I

Jeff Sutherland and the Scrum Inc. team present Scrum at Scale Part I - an object-oriented model for scaling Scrum across the business. The modular approach allows for the overall system to work together even if individual modules aren't agile. This allows the framework to support many different contexts verses other more "tightly coupled" scaling systems.

This one-hour course covers:

    • the full case for a modular vs. deterministic model of scaled Scrum
    • the overall vision for a modular scaled Scrum that spans the team, program/product/business unit, and enterprise levels
    • specific examples of different successful practices

You will not leave this course with a cookie-cutter answer for large-scale Scrum implementations. Instead, it will fundamentally change the way you think about agile processes within your organization and equip you to lead a thoughtful exploration of what the organization really needs from scaling Scrum.

A pattern is a practice or process that has been observed to address a specific set of challenges in a defined context. Patterns have emerged because scrum is proscriptive about the goals of each part of the framework but says very little about how to meet those goals. As such, over the years common practices have emerged to help teams meet those goals in the face of known impediments. Much like a play out of a sports team’s playbook, patterns help teams react to change and set the stage for success.
