Workshop goals

In this intensive one-day workshop you will pursue three goals:

1. Create an understanding of the common challenges with scaling Agile and formulating your company specific challenges.

2. Create a basic understanding of the four popular Agile scaling frameworks (DAD, LeSS, SAFe and Nexus). We will discuss their common grounds, their differences and how they want to tackle scaling challenges.

3. Create a toolset to help you make the right decisions for your organization by breaking down the scaling challenge into building blocks and asking yourself some important questions regarding the context in which you want to use Agile.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution, so you will have to create one yourself. That is what being Agile is all about!

Workshop format

This is a workshop,  not a course, and not a PowerPoint battle. Much of the content will be driven by the participants, and the Whiteboard will be our best friend. You will examine how you do Agile in your organization. You will reflect on how Agile has failed you, and how you have failed Agile. You will review topics you want to cover in more depth. You will share experiences with other participants and learn how other organizations or teams have solved your problems.

We will use the following “backlog” as a guidance for our workshop.

- The Problem and our Goal
- Scrum Refresher: Scrum Master, Product Owner, Development Team, Product Backlog, Definition of Done, Sprint Planning, Sprint Review, Daily Scrum, Retrospective
- Agile Scaling Issues
