Scling agile to the enterprise, framework and the debate!

A session at Scrum Australia 2016

Thursday 28th April, 2016

1:45pm to 2:35pm (EST)

It seems that since the beginning of the agile approaches we have been struggling with scaling our lean and agile ways of working: to broader contexts, larger numbers of people and increasingly complex domains.

With the emergence of these new approaches, we ‘agilistas’ were frankly grateful for the chance to be using agility and to remove the shackles of our traditionally managed projects. We had little in our toolkits to refute the criticism that ‘agile cannot scale beyond the team’.

As time moved on and our experiences evolved, there have emerged a number of new ‘scaling frameworks’ that have dominated the passionate debate in agile communities.

In this talk, Alexandra Stokes, a seasoned coach who has helped many organisations scale their agile processes, will explore and discuss the art of scaling agile ways of working to the enterprise. She will share her experience of what is useful in scaling frameworks and sensible to apply, as well as what can become a trap in some of these frameworks. Finally, she will expose her reasoning behind some of the passion on the debate on the subject.
