Nexus is based on the Scrum framework and uses an iterative and incremental approach to scaling Scrum. Nexus augments Scrum minimally with one new role and some expanded events and artifacts. The Nexus framework was created by Ken Schwaber, the Nexus Guide, in 2015 and updated in 2018.

In this webinar, we provide an overview of Nexus, describe how it is being used around the world to help organizations scale their Agile efforts with Scrum. Our presenters then demonstrate how these real-world scenarios using Nexus can be applied within the VersionOne Lifecycle solution. 

Topics covered will include:

  • Description of the framework
  • The essence of scaling/how to scale successfully
  • How to handle cross-team dependencies
  • Cross-team refinement (official event in Nexus/not in Scrum)
  • Nexus Sprint Planning
  • Nexus Integration Team (new role in Nexus)
  • The notion of descaling
