Scaling Scrum Without Crushing Its Soul
When: Tuesday April 23, 2019 6:30-8:30 pm Est
Where: Scrum.org Global HQ 131 Middlesex Turnpike Burlington MA
At the core of Scrum is the empowered self-organized team. However, when organizations scale, if they are not careful, they can disempower teams and destroy self-organization. When they do, they don't get what they are looking for, and the teams end up feeling defeated and unmotivated. When organizations impose order and consistency from the top down, they lose the benefits of Scrum. What organizations need is to scale the benefits of Scrum to multiple teams working together to deliver an integrated product, but without destroying transparency and the courage, respect, commitment, focus, and openness that Scrum encourages. In this talk, we will explore the common dysfunctions of scaling and how to overcome them. In the process, we describe the Nexus Framework for scaling Scrum. Nexus extends Scrum by focusing on removing cross-team dependencies, freeing teams to do their best work. Nexus builds on Scrum in a minimal way, helping organizations scale Scrum without destroying the essence of Scrum.
In this talk, Patricia Kong, Product Owner of Enterprise Solutions from Scrum.org will 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. She will also share case studies as examples showing how Nexus works. The audience will be taken through Nexus, its new events and the new role of the Nexus Integration Team.
