Agile Leadership & Scaling

Agile Scaling Frameworks Overview

How would your company look like if all its teams were agile? How would you organize, coordinate and manage big changes to ensure everything got done? When is the right moment to scale agile in your organization? And where do you start? What impact can you expect on management, team members, and specialist roles? Agile scaling frameworks, such as SAFe, LeSS, Scrum@Scale, Nexus and the Spotify model, provide different perspectives on these questions. How to choose which framework? These questions about agile scaling are exactly what this one-day training is about.

This one-day training introduces you to the topic of agile scaling. You will learn about the main challenges and areas of change. The most widely used frameworks are presented to help you choose which ones are the most interesting for your organization to learn more about. Each framework offers a 2 or 3 days class on its own. The Scaling Agile does not intend to replace these classes, but will help you decide whether or not to scale and if so, which model is the best fit for your organization.
