Scaling Your Agile Practices
As the complex nature and size of Agile initiatives have grown over the years, so too has the need for techniques and frameworks that enable Agile to be applied at a much larger scale.
While Scrum and Kanban are typically utilised at the single team level, or perhaps by a small number of teams, large scale Agile was specifically developed to be implemented at the multi-team/enterprise level – enabling tens and even hundreds of Agile teams based across multiple locations, to work collaboratively in a cohesive and productive manner.
SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) is the most popular framework for enabling organisations to successfully scale Agile beyond the single team, up to enterprise level. Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) is another scaling Agile framework, which provides simple guidelines, rules and direction on how to apply Scrum with multiple teams.
