Scaling agile involves moving from individual teams to a coordinated ‘team of teams’; what the Scaled Agile Framework calls an Agile Release Train. A critical move in this evolution is how best to organise these Agile Release Trains.
This talk will present the key success factors and best practices, from real world implementations to answer the key questions:
- What are the different strategies for aligning Agile Release Trains to value streams?
- How should we organise our teams across different Agile Release Trains and how do we work with shared teams?
- How can we successfully minimize dependencies and what is the best approach to managing them when they do occur?
- Why ongoing improvement in our Agile Release Train structure should be part of any transformation roadmap.
Success in this key first step lays the foundation for a successful agile transformation. Without it organisations often struggle to gain the benefits they expect.
