Today, I wanted to talk about Large Scale Scrum, or LeSS. We’ve begun experimenting with it in our organization, and I wanted to share my experiences thus far. However, I felt I couldn’t. It felt premature. Before I could tell that story, I first needed to explain where we are, how we got there, and what motivated us to scale our agile approach.
However, I don’t suspect that’s a very interesting story for many of you. Why should you care about a 100-person start up in Silicon Valley? We’re not you, and you’re not here. The context, the mindsets, and the people vary from one company to another, right? What stays constant, however, are some simple principles so that’s where we’ll begin.
