(Scrum, Kanban, XP, etc.) Scrum Scrum Scrum / Kanban / specific XP practices "mandated" Scrum /Lean Own method though partly Scrum- like Own Hybrid Agile Scrum method Emphasizes more Central control or distributed? Distributed with light coordination Centralized prioritization and distributed coordination More Central & top-down on ideas but distributed ownership on "how" ?

Any that are running Scrum Has 2 suggested structures for different size organizations Focused on enterprises Used in many diverse organizations Only intended for Spotify - perhaps fits other relatively flat & agile orgs Mature Complex Organization Focal point (teams/structure - enterprise/ROI) team/structure Inter-team dependencies team/structure Agile thinking, PO scale and structure team/structure A customizable but prescriptive framework for most aspects of Agile at scale. team/structure Larger project stages; Technical process gaps for craftsmanship at scale team/structure Very agile scaling with little overhead; team affiliations; cross- team concern handling team/structure Communication Paths coloaborative teams Focus on CHANGE in (People, Process, Product, other…) 1) Process 2) People 1) Process 2) Product 1) Process 2) Product 1) Process 2) Practices 1) Process 2) People Very agile scaling with little overhead; team affiliations; cross- team concern handling Software centric - how often used outside of SW or IT? Could use anywhere you use Scrum Focused on Software or SW/HW Has been used outside of IT Spotify only Has been used outside of IT Big Positives / Key Differentiatiators simple, standard Scrum focus on dependencies & resolutions Good PO scaling; strong principle alignment, Non-prescriptive - gives "suggestions" The "big picture" and completeness; getting Agile "in the door" at large corporations; actively evolving. Lots of content; strong in areas such as architecture, design and dev ops; incorporates many good models. very agile, entrepreneurial, distributed teams, low overhead Very established following in the UK Key Risks / Concerns limited scaling, limited documentation, not clearly defined Not always seen as "sufficient" for large scale; some differences in implementation A more "radically agile" approach that may be a hard sell in larger traditional orgs with many layers and specializations. Little info on "how", most need certified SPCs to implement properly; Seen as prescriptive; not "agile enough" in its structures; "quick start and leave" issues some places vague in some areas about the "how"; can come across as a bit disjointed. Not prescriptive in lifecycle. very limited detail about the "how", Not really a framework; may only fit certain cultures Heavy process overhead. Training / Resource availability None known; roll your own Training and coaching network available Yes, multi-level training & Certifications Yes, multi-level Certifications None known; roll your own Yes, multi-level Certifications Deployment Approach (how to get started and make it sustainable) Self-Organize; roll your own Covered now on their site https://less.works/less/adoption /getting-started.html Can roll your own but usually done with certified coaches (SPC's) and training. Roll your own & pick from a large number of possible practices. None known; roll your own Training Coaching by the DSDM group. Appendix http://www.agilescaling.org/ask-matrix.html

  28. 28. May 30, 2018 28DXC Proprietary and Confidential Root ‘Traditional’ Agile and Constant Business Focus Tips: • “Building Blocks”: Deep Scrum, Kanban expertise performing teams • Natural vs Synthetic Agile: Organic growth and Scaling approaches selection (top down, bottom up), organization + technical excellence • Trust: Building trust thru transparency, visualizations, communities of practice • Noise: don’t get distracted with various ‘trends’ – stick to your core business goals and how you can best get there • People: get experienced Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches (certifications does not count) when it comes to Scaling • … stay connected in Agile Lithuania Community!
