Five Things You Should Know Before Scaling Agile Teams & Culture

Having scaled a number of Agile teams at different speeds, this presentation will walk you through some of the inflection points you will experience, how to navigate them, and reflect on all the things the presenter wishes she had known just a little bit earlier.

In engineering, we (rightly) talk a lot about how to scale our systems and our infrastructure. Yet some of our very hardest challenges come when scaling the people side of things. How do you survive your team doubling, tripling or perhaps even a 10x growth in a short period of time? What does it take to grow fast AND retain the bits of your culture as a team or organization that made you great to begin with? How do you know when to change how you do things, without just achieving cargo cult Agile?
