Patterns for Scaling Agile 



Event Description:

Scaling Agile is risky. No matter what framework you use to scale Agile in a large enterprise, what are the patterns which lead to success, and what are the anti-patterns which lead to disasters?

We invite all experienced Agile practitioners to explore and form a list of scaling patterns and anti-patterns. We will share our experience on how to create the successful patterns or avoid/resolve the anti-patterns. This is a highly interactive workshop with a goal to help the Agile community be more successful with enterprise transformations.

Attendees can choose to be participants or observers. Some of the aspects of enterprise transformations to be explored for patterns and anti-patterns include: Large scale planning, Geographically distributed teams, Agile mind set and Agile metrics.
