Scaling Agile

Abstract

Agile approaches are an integral part of modern project management. Probably the most popular agile framework, Scrum is increasingly being accepted in projects or organisations that are outside of IT.

Scaling is becoming more and more important. However, it often turns out that the success of a switch to Scrum or Kanban at the team level is difficult to transfer to more extensive projects or even the organisation. Vertical scaling by merely setting up several (Scrum) teams often leads to the opposite effect.

Over the last years, several frameworks have been created to tackle the agile scaling challenge. This chapter will take a closer look into the frameworks and tries to find out if there is an overarching answer to it.
