Scaled Professional Scrum (Rationale of The Nexus Framework)
Professional Scrum Trainer Gunther Verheyen looks at how numerous organizations worldwide have adopted Scrum to become more agile. Many of them have engaged in endeavors to scale their product development done through Scrum. None of these efforts are easy, and each effort faces specific challenges. Each organization has its own structure, culture, business goals and strategies, IT practices and infrastructure, domains of competence, software, tools, and people.
Every initiative to scale is unique. Nobody knows upfront exactly what an organization needs to scale Scrum. Nobody knows especially what an organization will look like as it scales. The ‘Scaled Professional Scrum’ framework builds on the corner stones of Scrum, i.e. bottom-up knowledge creation, self-organization, empiricism. It is a foundational framework upon which a systematic, emergent, managed initiative to scale can grow.
