Support for Scrum@Scale

No matter your approach to scaling agile, we're here to help.


Scrum@Scale (S@S) is a framework for organizations that already have Scrum successfully working at the team level and are looking to implement it throughout the organization. It’s an extension of the Scrum framework from one of the co-creators of Scrum, Jeff Sutherland. The main goal is to align growing organizations around a common and shared set of goals. Coordination is managed through a Scrum of Scrums, which is comprised of Scrum Masters from each team, and a MetaScrum, made up of product owners.
