What we're about

This group is about everything Scrum and Large Scale Scrum. Scrum has become the defacto framework for teams in organizations around the world. However, what works for one team does not work for multiple Scrum teams working together. What is this mystical beast called Multi-team Scrum? And how does that work in a large organization context.

From Empirical Process Control: more learning and adaption with less defined processes, prescriptions, and formulas. More based on principles, less based on detailed practices.

From Scaling: compared to many traditional and alternative approaches to scaling, less roles, less artifacts, less single-specialist groups, less overhead, less handoff and information scatter, less indirection between developers and customers.

From Agile Values: more organizational agility (flexibility) with less complexity.

From Lean Thinking: more value with less waste and overhead.

From Impact Mapping and Value-Driven Development: more outcome with less outputs

This group is a sister group to the Canada East/Toronto LeSS meetup group
