Scaling agility is a challenge with many aspects. With scaling agility we have to leave the happy kingdom of development and have to stand more or less exhausting battles with organizational change, communication in all areas of the value chain from marketing over product management to operation.
Unluckily there is an additional and unneeded world of war as well – and we, the agile community are the cause and delivering the weapons. These are the different frameworks and approaches out there on the market about how to scale. Just to throw some names in: Agility Path, SAFe, DAD, Less, the-new-deal – and I am sure you will find more when surfing through sources on the internet.
This is a game of thrones. Unluckily for the organization that strive to improve this is unsettling, a source of doubt and a crowd of smart consultants as a white guard.
Is there a chance for the never-ending summer or is winter coming?
