This session will focus on what are the aspects organizations should consider when they want to scale agile implementation in organization.  There are several frameworks out there like SAFe, LeSS, Spotify, and so on. what is it that organization is trying to achieve and how a systematic approach of scaled agile implementation can help the organization.

Attendees will be able to understand what aspects should be considered before organization decides to scale agile.  How to scale agile and when to do it largely depends on what organization is trying to achieve. Each organization is operating it in different way so there is no defined formula or framework that will work for all. But guidelines from this session will help the members to identify their needs and then take further action.  These guidelines can help the organization to successfully scale agile irrespective of which framework is selected.

 

Areas covered in this session are:

  • what are the driving principles while scaling agile

  • Where to start

  • Which Framework should I select?

  • Organizational changes

  • Briefly introduce scaling frameworks and their main differentiating points.

  • Changes needed at org level - structures, role of managers, other roles

  • What all needs to be scaled - communication, engineering practices, some roles like po, 

  • How to roll out the scaling plan, implement it and sustain it

  • To grow and evolve - organizations can continue this journey. It is never ending process. Achieve mastery based on available information  and then evolve, continuous improvement

 

 

Learning Outcome

Attendees will be able to understand what aspects should be considered before organization decides to scale agile.  How to scale agile and when to do it largely depends on what organization is trying to achieve. Each organization is operating it in different way so there is no defined formula or framework that will work for all. But guidelines from this session will help the members to identify their needs and then take further action.

 

Top 3  unique learning outcomes will be:

1) before selecting scaling approach, organization needs to analyze their goals, culture, purpose for scaling agile in their organization

2) what are various scaling frameworks available and how to select scaling approach that suits organizational needs

3) steps of rolling out scaling framework irrespective of which framework is selected and sustain it.
