Event Description

Scale Up Scrum to a Higher Level

Slides are here

Often referred to as "Scrum of Scrum" - and SAFe Scaled Agile Framework - and this year, LESS Large Scale Scrum - all these are the logical extension to ramp up Scrum to a higher level -and has been tried in various flavors.  So why is this so hard ? 

When multiple development teams cooperate on the delivery of a single software product, they face unique challenges: dependencies, integration issues, and quality differentials. Even if those teams are high-performance Scrum teams, the communication pathways in Scrum won’t suffice. The Scrum framework wasn’t designed to support more than a single team. The Scaled Professional Scrum framework (a.k.a. the "Nexus") was designed to handle these higher level functions.

We will introduce Nexus and learn the new roles, events, and artifacts that provide the "exoskeleton" to existing Scrum teams, enabling them to scale effectively.

Even if you have evaluated or adopted other scaling frameworks and methodologies or are just starting to experience the friction of software development at scale, come and be part of the conversation. Our speaker Richard Hundhausen wants you to bring your most challenging Scrum development and scaling questions and get them answered.

Read more about the Nexus here:

Richard Hundhausen is the president of Accentient  - a company that helps software teams develop better products by leveraging ALM tools and Scrum.

He is a Professional Scrum Trainer, author of the book "Professional Scrum Development with Microsoft Visual Studio" and is the co-creator of the Scaled Professional Scrum framework. As a software developer and consultant with over 30 years of experience, he understands that software is built and delivered by people and not by processes or tools.

Food sponsor for this meeting is Dell Boomi for the Cloud

The Food Sponsor will be Dell Boomi in the Cloud . . . Dell Boomi is cloud-based integration company. We move data from application A to application B.  For example new client data in an Oracle database needs to be the instance. Clients build that integration in their web-based development environment and schedule it to run every hour.
