The principles of Agile development, including the Scrum framework, are widely known and easily described. What is not so easy is the organization and management of product development in an Agile way in organizations that grow over time. 

In this presentation, Kevin Thompson will present the history of a model software-development organization as it grows over time, and show how different strategies are needed to ensure effective organization and Agile collaboration of the growing population, over time and across an increasing number of locations.


  • How to organize Scrum Teams in a large and geographically-distributed company
  • How to make Scrum work for a team that is split geographically
  • How to coordinate the work of multiple Scrum Teams working on a single product
