Agile at Scale SIG - Feature vs Component Teams

Topic: Feature vs Component Teams

One of the first steps in an Agile adoption is the formation and organization of agile teams. Using agile with one team and one product backlog is straightforward. But, how do we scale to support larger products/projects that involve more people than can reasonably fit on a single team? Most agile practitioners recommend scaling with feature teams--cross-functional and cross-component teams that can pull end-customer features from the product backlog and complete them. Most large organizations prefer scaling with component teams--teams that focus on the development of a component or subsystem that can be used to create only part of an end-customer feature. Join us in a discussion on what works, what doesn't and what scaling frameworks such as LeSS And SAFe recommend.

    Just posted the deck on slideshare. Meetup no longer supports file uploading. Previous files are still there but you can't post new ones. If you want the ppt file, please email me and I'll send it to you. Thank you for the opportunity to share the information. Glad to have such an engaged group to have the discussion. https://www.slideshare.net/LelandNewsom/feb17-feature-vscomponentteams

    Looks like we have a lot of interest with 19 people on the waitlist. If you said yes, and your schedule has now changed can you update your RSVP so those on the waitlist can get added?
