Scaling across Agile Teams
IN THIS CHAPTER
Identifying when and why to scale across multi-team projects
Understanding the basics of scaling
Exploring scaling challenges
Depending on the schedule, scope, and required skills, many small and medium-sized projects can be accomplished with a single scrum team. Larger projects, however, may require more than one scrum team to achieve the product vision and release goals in a reasonable go-to-market time frame. When more than one scrum team is required, the teams need effective inter-team collaboration, communication, and synchronization — they need to be agile at scale. Regardless of project size, if interdependencies exist between multiple teams working together on the same project, or even across a collection of projects, you may need to scale.
