Does an agile approach also work in larger structures or only in smaller teams? Originally designed for smaller teams, agility can also be implemented very well in larger structures, but requires a certain adaptation. Pragmatic scaling means going beyond the frameworks, adapting the approach and integrating lean thinking and organizational development.
The most important frameworks for scaled agile development are currently SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework) and LeSS (Large Scaled Scrum).
Dean Leffingwell's Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is an open framework for implementing lean and agile methods in large organizations throughout the enterprise.
With the Agile Release Train, the framework describes an approach to implement agility within a large organization with many teams and dependencies. In addition to changing the working methods of individual teams, this also involves the change to an agile company.
"Scrum is simple - it's just One Team LeSS!" - The framework "Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS)" offers a lean way to apply Scrum in large product developments even in globally distributed companies without moving away from the core ideas and principles of Scrum.

Training- and consulting offerings
We want to contribute a view on scaling agile which starts from the need, not from a specific solution. Different context, skills and experience in the organization demands a different solution, be it a decision for one of the frameworks or a best-of breed approach.
Learn how to implement enterprise-wide Agile using the Scaled Agile Framework and attain certification as a SAFe Agilist. Participants can take the SAFe Agilist certification exam.
LeSS is about how to scale agility in large, complex organizations. A question that may seem familiar to many organizations. With Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS), two frameworks (LeSS and LeSS Huge) are now available, by means of which Scrum can be consistently scaled without much addition in order to be agile and viable as a company.
We support organisations as certified SAFe consultants to implement and adapt the concepts of the Scaled Agile Framework to the needs of an organisation.
