Scaling Agility Principles over Frameworks, with Colin Bird

Colin Bird

  • Are you attempting to implement Agile at a larger scale?
  • Do you have numerous teams that need to collaborate as a cohesive unit?
  • Are you implementing Agile throughout your organisation?

If you are exploring the need for a scaling framework, this presentation offers an alternative perspective. We will explore an evolutionary and principle-led approach, based on a forthcoming body of work. Our discussion will emphasise the importance of starting with principles and considering our current context. We will delve into some essential scaling principles and offer guidance on their effective application, with or without a scaling framework.
A group of five Agile coaches has been collaborating on a framework-agnostic approach to scaling since October 2020. The concepts, principles and approach are packaged into a body of work referred to as ScaleAgility, the first version of which is due to be published in the Summer of 2023.
The ScaleAgility team: Colin Bird (England), Jan B. Olsen (Denmark), Pierluigi Pugliese (Germany),
Matt Roadnight (England), Simon Roberts (Scotland).

About the Speaker
Colin Bird is an Agile coach and trainer working with the lovely team at RippleRock. While widely recognised for his long association with Scrum, he has a wide range of interests including Organisational Agility, Agile Leadership, Psychological Safety, and of course, the challenges associated with scaling Agile. His Scrum journey started in 2003 and by 2005 he was grappling with the challenges of multi-team Scrum. He has since learnt many valuable lessons (some painfully!) from a highly diverse range of interesting contexts that include scaled programmes, organisational transformations, and the application of Agile in non-technical domains.
