Many adopting organizations treat Agile/Scrum like a shiny new project management overlay for development teams and invest their entire energies to extract every ounce of productivity without any significant structural changes to support it. Supplemented with anecdotal observations, this talk discusses the symptoms and nuisances of this anti-pattern in context of a large product development group with multiple and distributed Scrum teams. The session then describes the principles and experiments of Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) that organizations can use to avoid the pitfalls. More importantly, it highlights the laws of organizational behaviour and how structure influences both culture & strategy and how it can be the most important catalyst for unleashing creativity and a successful Agile adoption at scale by nurturing and fostering "smart creatives".
