Who is this course for

This course has two primary audiences: those who are about to scale for the first time and wish to avoid the most common pitfalls and those who have been in a scaled environment for some time and are looking for a fresh perspective and new patterns to experiment with.

You will learn how to

  • Decide if you are ready to scale your Agile practice

  • Select the correct scaling framework for your needs

  • Understand the different Roles, Events and Artefacts within Agile Scaling

  • Explore the common challenges that Agile Scaling brings


Experience of single team Agility or holding an entry level Agile certification (CSM®, PSM I, CSPO®, PSPO I, KMP etc.) is essential.

Benefits for you as an individual

As agile working practices spread to an ever-widening audience, the demand for agilists who can help enterprises navigate the minefield that is scaled Agile is growing. This workshop will give you insight to the most common frameworks (LeSS, SAFe®, Nexus, S@S etc.) but, more importantly, give you insight into the most common problems encountered in multi-team environments and a toolbox of patterns to help resolve them.

Benefits for your organisation

The challenge of scaling Agility for most organisations is how to maintain self-managing teams while building the degree of co-ordination that is vital for multi-team endeavours to succeed. This workshop will provide attendees with critical thinking skills to work with their Agile teams that allow synergy at a team-of-teams level while maximising autonomy at the single-team level.


Due to the workshop nature of this course as much as 50% of the context can flex based on the current challenges faced by the team, what follows below represents core content, plus some of the more common challenges encountered in a scaled environment.
