When: Wednesday, September 28, 2016 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm Est
Where: Scrum Inc., 1 Broadway Cambridge MA
Nigel Thurlow, lead trainer and coach for 3M, GE and Toyota with Scrum Inc., will share some of the latest thinking from Scrum Inc. around their fractal approach to Scrum@Scale.
At its roots, Scrum is an Object Oriented Framework where each role, artifact & ceremony are defined by objectives, participants, inputs and outputs. Core Scrum allows for many different ways to achieve objectives within given input/output constraints and thus is well suited to be scaled throughout all levels of an organization.
In this presentation, Nigel will describe the core components of Scrum@Scale, a modular approach to scaling that allows organizations to establish and improve Agile practices incrementally by focusing on one independent module at a time. Nigel will demonstrate this approach by focusing in on the Product Owner role and its critical importance to success at scale. Nigel will also describe some key Scrum patterns that support Scrum@Scale as well as sharing the successes at 3M where they have so far scaled over 1000 developers.
