Scaling Agile - what, how and when : Presented by Nilesh Kulkarni

897 views

Published on

This session was focused on what are the aspects organizations should consider when they want to scale agile implementation in organization. There are several frameworks out there like SAFe, LeSS, Spotify, and so on. what is it that organization is trying to achieve and how a systematic approach of scaled agile implementation can help the organization.
Attendees were exploring what aspects should be considered before organization decides to scale agile. How to scale agile and when to do it largely depends on what organization is trying to achieve. Each organization is operating it in different way so there is no defined formula or framework that will work for all. But guidelines from this session will help the members to identify their needs and then take further action. These guidelines can help the organization to successfully scale agile irrespective of which framework is selected.
