Scaling Workshop

We have added a 1 day workshop to many of our courses.  It includes 1/2 day on Story Splitting and 1/2 Day on Scaling.  Dave Muldoon and I will do the Workshop.  Dave has years of experience scaling in a large multinational corporation.

What: The workshop reviews quickly the several approaches to scaling out in the community now: SAFe, LeSS, DAD, and the ‘scaling’ ideas at  And then we lead a workshop to help you devise solutions to your specific problems.  In general, we focus on scaling per se — what to do when multiple teams must work together.  Which patterns to use.

To a lesser degree, we also may address, as the group needs, issues such as agile transformation, extending agile to more teams, distributed scrum, cultural change, etc.

Value: First, we want you to keep the focus on ‘the Team’.  But the realities of many large projects are that multiple teams must often work together.  For these big projects, the messiness of scaling is inevitable.  And so the goal is to get more done in faster time. But still maintain the quality of the end product and have it deliver what the customer really needs when we deliver it.

In other words, despite all the problems of scaling, we want to be more successful than other competition. And more successful than we have ever been before.

Doing this well and professional can bring huge value. To the individuals involved, to the Teams (and the group of teams), to the firm, and to the customers.
