Scaling Agility by Descaling Organizational Complexity

Scrum, Extreme Programming and other agile frameworks have been introduced more than 20 years ago to improve the way software is developed, to get better business results and at the same time improve the life of development teams. Nowadays it’s more and more clear to managers in all business areas, not only IT, why such frameworks based on empirical process control are much more successful in complex systems like business environments than old ways of project management. Unfortunately, the mentioned frameworks are designed for teams up to 9 people and courses like the Scrum Master certifications are focused on how to introduce the agile way of working in a team not in an organisation.

In this talk I will make the case that to achieve true agility an organization needs to descale the complexity of processes and roles. We will discuss the organizational design implications that Scrum (as an agile framework) creates both regarding structure and policies. We will discuss what it takes for an organization to adhere to the foundational principles that support Agile software development as conceived in the Agile Manifesto. Furthermore I will provide learnings from adopting Scrum in large organizations with hunderds of developers.

Why you can’t compare LeSS to any scaling Framework like SAFe

In this article, Robert clarify's why LeSS shouldn’t be seen as a scaling framework and why it can’t be compared to any other scaling framework. LeSS has a fundamentally different approach. Instead of adding complexity, it aims to remove it.
