Good day all!
I hope you can help me and with that enrich this forum with it.
I am looking for adoptions of Nexus and stories how it came about that from the scaling methods, Nexus was chosen.
What problems did you encounter and how were they solved or mitigated?
Working with Nexus for some time, is it still your method of choice?
How big is your Nexus (how many teams)?
And any other useful uplifting or counter productive things you think of.
Bear in mind that Nexus is not a method, it is a framework, and successful implementations are not chosen but rather a continuation of what teams are already doing. Scaled Professional Scrum is still Scrum.
I've used the Nexus framework with three Scrum Teams (two working on-site and 1 working off-site).
Like Ian said, I decided to use Nexus because we were already working in Scrum and we would be working on 1 common backlog (important fact, since this is what scaling should be all about).
Most important is that your Scrum teams are already invested into and accept Scrum or introducing the Nexus framework will create a lot of hostility towards Scrum.
Secondly, I also used a Scrum of Scrums for coordinating between Teams that worked together, but had individual backlogs or even didn't need to work in Scrum or another Agile framework (example Database Teams or Main/Midframe Teams, Company Security, etc...). They just needed a timeline with was expected from them at certain points to support our Scrum Teams.
Hi @rene there are several case studies here: https://www.scrum.org/resources?field_resource_tags_target_id=150&type=69
