Scaling Agile to work in large organizations is a hot topic. Some coaches and consultants offer frameworks (SAFe, LeSS, Holocracy) but others don't believe such frameworks can work. Other companies publish their own custom approach (Spotify, Menlo, Zappos) but it appears that people often copy these without thinking. Apparently, silver bullets, copy/paste solutions and shu-level practices are easy to sell but don't enable real transformation. However, there is some evidence of "Teal" or "Management 3.0" organizations reporting some mild successes.
Considering the fast-changing environments that many companies are faced with, is it worth addressing the complex problem of Agile at Scale with such simple or complicated solutions? Are some companies successful because or despite of the solutions that they copied from the market? What problem are we trying to solve by "scaling agile"? What is really different when we work with 50,000 people instead of just five? And which things in our context determine whether proposed solutions have actual value for us?
Bring your own real-world experience; what you've tried, what's worked, what's failed, and what you think might be the causes. Engage in spirited debate as we learn together, even continuing to learn and share well beyond this session and even this conference.
