An agile software development approach accelerates progress and delivers value faster by working in smaller increments, reducing planning overhead, removing bottlenecks, improving collaboration between team members, and including the business as part of the team. Rather than focusing on rigid contracts and relying on comprehensive documentation, the agile project relies on transparent communication and personal accountability to drive results.
Many teams succeed with an agile approach, yet struggle when it comes to scaling up to the size and complexity required by large complex systems, systems-of-systems, or large programs of work.
This event demonstrates proven successful techniques for setting up a structure of many teams, controlling the flow of information, and planning and coordinating across all the teams.
The shift to an agile approach from the traditional approach is profound. We have found that no amount of explaining can adequately convey the differences between the approaches; one has to
experience the agile approach in order to appreciate the benefits and the challenges of this new way of working. This is even truer for Agile @ Scale than it is for agile in the small.
This simulation can be performed as a practical application of the mechanisms that support Agile @ Scale appropriate to your organization or using a specific scaled agile framework such as SAFe or LeSS.
