Hi everyone!

In the Nexus Guide is written that has more than 40 pratices to help scaled scrum projects and teams, but the guide don't list it.

Anyone has a list of this 40+ pratices? Or at least some of them?

Nexus is a framework, and it does not prescribe which practices ought to be used when implementing it.

Can you clarify which version of the Nexus Guide you are using, and where mention is made of "more than 40 practices"?

Not directly in the framework, but in the workshops conducted by :-)
Now, it is over 50 practices.

Exactly Oliver.

Does anybody knows what are this 40+ practices?

Even though dont show up explicity in the Nexus Guide, these practices are helpful. I would like to know what are to improve my work and process.

Gunther Verheyen has referred to the following practices in a number of Nexus presentations. I'd imagine that these are the principal ones being referred to even if they don't constitute a complete set.

Feature teams
Product Backlog metadata
Continuous Product Backlog refinement
Story mapping
Product Backlog cross team dependency mapping
Communities of practice
ALM artifact automation
Test driven development
Continuous integration of all work
Frequent builds
Frequent testing
Limited branching
Descaling and Scrumble
Architecture contains experimentation and A/B switches
Thin sliced Product Backlog items compose Sprint Backlog for ATDD
