Why Scaling Agile Matters
Most organizations start scaling Agile because they have big, complex problems that need to be solved. They need to take big chunks of work, break them down, and deliver them faster and more efficiently. They need to spur innovation, deliver customer value faster, beat the competition, disrupt the market, and seize opportunities as quickly as they arise.
Scaling Agile is the act of taking what skilled, smaller teams of individuals are using to successfully drive product development and expanding the process, the methodologies – and the benefits – across the organization.
This is achieved by connecting teams and teams of teams, and then breaking down multi-faceted initiatives into smaller pieces of work to be worked on simultaneously. This allows Agile teams to deliver value iteratively, in a way that constantly tests value delivery to ensure alignment to what the customer wants.
Scaling Agile supports the “fail fast” mentality: To learn from and improve the development process with each release. As Agile teams deliver, they gather internal and external feedback that is used to continuously evaluate delivery processes and ensure they’re streamlined and maximized.
If an organization’s initiatives are failing, either the teams aren’t aligned to achieve them, leadership has no visibility into roadblocks, or they can’t effectively remove them when they arise. Scaling Agile will align teams, and by way of Agile ceremonies, provide cadences, suggested alignment meetings, and offer deep visibility into progress and dependencies so leaders can identify roadblocks early, evaluate options to address them and act accordingly – before the initiative(s) is negatively impacted. Scaling Agile across an organization will shine a light on and eliminate many of the obstacles preventing the achievement of key strategic objectives.
