Scaling Agile

Agile scaling has a deep impact on the organization's structure and the collaboration of employees. Therefore, it is important to first clarify which goal you are pursuing and which problem you want to solve.

The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and Large Scale Scrum (Less) are currently the best known concepts for agile development in large projects. Both are excellent suited to support large development organizations on their way to agility. 

With Pragmatic Scaling, we have developed a format that clarifies the goals and decision bases before deciding on frameworks and other tools.

We are happy to support you with these questions, please contact us.

Our trainings

Pragmatic scaling beyond frameworks

We want to contribute a view on scaling agile which starts from the need, not from a specific solution. Different context, skills and experience in the organization demands a different solution, be it a decision for one of the frameworks or a best-of breed approach.

Introduction to LeSS

LeSS is about how to scale agility in large, complex organizations. A question that may seem familiar to many organizations. With Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS), two frameworks (LeSS and LeSS Huge) are now available, by means of which Scrum can be consistently scaled without much addition in order to be agile and viable as a company.
