Scaling Agile Showdown

“How do you scale agile­?” is a question that has started to pop up across organisations and at different levels of the organisation. Many also wonder “What is the best way to scale?” and “When should you scale agile?”

Organisations use different approaches for scaling agile, but what are the similarities across the scalings frameworks, and what are the differences. And would some fit your organisation better than others?

During this meetup on scaling agile frameworks, you will get a taste of the four most widely used scaling frameworks; SAFe, LeSS, Scrum@Scale and Nexus – and make you able to differentiate them.
