Scrum is everywhere, with over 90% of agile teams using it. But for many organizations wanting to scale agile, one team using Scrum is not enough. Scrum is not enough. The Nexus Framework, created by Ken Schwaber the co-creator of Scrum, provides an exoskeleton to Scrum, allowing multiple teams to work together to produce an integrated increment regularly. It addresses the key challenges of scaling agile development by adding new yet minimal events, artifacts and roles to the Scrum framework.

In this talk, we introduce the Nexus Framework and how it, like Scrum, promotes bottom-up thinking with top down support in order to discover and emerge what works best for your organization. We will use case studies as examples to describe Nexus in detail showing how it works, how it is working, and what its strengths and weaknesses are. The audience will be taken through Nexus, its new events and the key role of the Nexus Integration Team.
