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.
