The Scaled Agile Framework - What it is, What it isn't, and what it means for Agile

A session at Agile and Beyond 2014

Saturday 22nd February, 2014

3:00pm to 3:45pm (LMT)

Agile Software Requirements, by Dean Leffingwell, was published in December of 2010, and a few years later the Scaled Agile Academy started certifying "Scaled Agile Framework Program Consultant" (SPCs). Today there are almost 300 SPCs internationally and the numbers are growing. But WHY? What IS the Scaled Agile Framework? Is it the best thing it hit agile since The Manifesto? Does it truly help Agile scale to large companies? Is it just more waterfall? Does it get you the right behavior? Is it just a pretty picture? How does this compare to Scum, DAD, and other Agile "Methodologies?" Is this Beyond Agile or back to command and control?

Holly Bielawa, former Menlo HTA and current Agile Consultant and SPC at Ivar Jacobson International will answer these questions and more in this interactive session.
