Join Alexey Krivitsky for his Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS): LEGO simulation!
Since invented in 2009 lego4scrum has become a very popular simulation to teach Scrum. Nowadays how to get several teams to scrum, seems, is no longer a secret.
Though knowing how to make agile work in a large-scale multi-team environment is. So In 2016 I was able to scale lego4scrum to over 155 people (22 development teams) all building an overall product. This approach is described in a newly released book called (what a suprise!): "lego4scrum".
This practical session we will simulated a large-scale environment with 10+ teams (we need your help - please come to this session!).
What will we be doing:
- working closely with the market representatives to know their needs
- achieving shared understanding of a product with 10+ teams working together
- setting up a suitable (flat) organizational structure capable of delivering
- putting a lightweight process on top that is barely enough but enables self-management
- building a working product that satisfies the market needs
Great helpers here are understanding complexity and system thinking, knowing how Scrum really works on the team-level, and few core ideas from LeSS framework, such as: an overall product backlog, a single Product Owner, joint team meetings.
