Scrum is everywhere, with over 90% of agile teams using it. But for many organizations wanting to scale agile, one team using Scrum is not enough..
The Nexus Framework, created by Ken Schwaber the co-creator of Scrum, provides an exoskeleton to Scrum, allowing multiple teams to work together to produce an integrated increment regularly. It addresses the key challenges of scaling agile development by adding new yet minimal events, artifacts and roles to the Scrum framework.
At this presentation, we will introduce Nexus and address the boundaries of Nexus and what else is needed for Agile to thrive in the organization. Throughout the session, we’ll explore our experiences on how organizations have transitioned to agile and discuss their successes and challenges in implementing Scrum, how they envision scaling with Nexus, and goals for creating a Scrum Studio.
