Scaling Professional Scrum Workshop

As you know, Scrum is a proven successful way for individual teams to deliver value quickly. As the needs of the business expand beyond what an individual team can accomplish, however, organizations need to scale Scrum while remaining agile. The problem is that dependencies, technical debt, and integration issues scale as well.


The Scaled Professional Scrum workshop will show you how to launch, structure, staff, and manage a large agile or Scrum project. You will be introduced to the Scaled Professional Scrum (SPS) framework and walk through forming and managing a Nexus,, the core development unit of SPS. You will leave knowing how to scale Scrum in order to maximize the value of your software development initiative.
