What is Scrum@Scale?
Scrum@Scale is an operating model and framework within which networks of Scrum Teams, operating consistently with the Scrum Guide, can address complex problems, while creatively delivering products of the highest possible value. These “products” may be hardware, software, complex integrated systems, processes, services, etc., depending upon the domain of the Scrum Teams.
Scrum@Scale enables the transformation of every division, department, and service in any organisation and can efficiently coordinate an unlimited number of Scrum teams through its use of a “scale-free” architecture. Scrum@Scale naturally extends the core Scrum framework and was created by Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of Scrum.
