Special August Event: Dr. JEFF SUTHERLAND on SCRUM at SCALE

When: August 28, 2014
Where: Cambridge MA
Who: Dr. Jeff Sutherland

Description

Scrum At Scale

Jeff Sutherland presented Scrum at Scale at Agile 2014 with Alex Brown, COO of Scrum Inc. – an object-oriented model for scaling Scrum across the business.

The modular approach allows for the overall system to work together even if individuals module aren’t agile. This allows the framework to support many different contexts verses other more “tightly coupled” scaling systems.

They discussed:

    • 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

This is not 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.
