Presentation: "Agile Scaling without Blueprints"

Track: On the Boundaries of Agile / Time: Friday 10:20 - 11:10 / Location: Hall 2

When more than 10 people are needed to reach a goal multiple agile teams are needed. These teams have to coordinate - we have to scale agile. There are several blueprints for scaling agile. This session argues that using a blueprint is premature optimization. 
When looking at successful agile companies one thing becomes clear: they didn't follow a blueprint but implemented unique structures and processes. Every company is unique and needs unique structures and processes matching its purpose.
In this talk Stefan presents the Agile Scaling Cycle, an organic approach to find and optimize scaling structures appropriate for the company.
