Scaling is Failing: It is Impossible to 'Scale' Innovation
This is a preview of a talk he will give in India at the end of the May.
Daniel will cover why we can't expect to have economies of scale for complex, unknown, innovative, ground-breaking work.
If we are churning out widgets and building simple things, then there can be some advantages of "scaling". Thus, it can make sense to use Agile practices such as Scrum for the more innovative work and lean manufacturing concepts for the work that can be operationalized (churning out widgets).
Also, what CAN be scaled?
This is planned especially for our members who really like to stay in the Suburbs during Philly Tech Week.
And for those who are considering SAFe or LESS or NEXUS or other variant of Scaling Agile.
