Dear Nexus, You Scaled My Scrum
Nexus is a scaled Agile framework created by Ken Schwaber, co-creator of Scrum, and released by Scrum.org in 2015. This framework is both lightweight and flexible – allowing for teams to add tools and techniques that are entirely their own. Nexus augments the existing Scrum framework to provide a simple and straightforward approach to delivering a single integrated product at scale. Nexus is easy to understand and can easily “wrap-around” an existing implementation of Scrum. In this session, we’ll walkthrough the fundamentals of Nexus as well as my personal experience leveraging Scrum.org's scaled Scrum framework for the past year.
