Module 1 of the (online) Scrum Pocket Class “Scrum in the Large” is a short, focused half-day workshop to help participants discover how Scrum looks like in a set-up of Multi-team Scrum, i.e when multiple teams work on the same product. It is a great occasion for awesome Scrum practitioners to deepen their roots in and understanding of Scrum, the most popular Agile framework.
Scrum’s DNA is empiricism and self-organization. Scrum promotes simplicity. Scrum promotes clear accountability and peer collaboration to deal with unpredictability and formulate answers to complex problems. What Scrum promotes was not at the core of many enterprises when enlarging their organizational and work structures. It still isn’t. The main challenge in applying Scrum in the large lies not in fitting Scrum into the existing structures, but to revise the existing structures via a bottom-up understanding, implementation and growth of Scrum.
The workshop will provide participants with the insights to tackle the challenge of respecting and keeping the base rules of the game intact, even at scale. Because the rules of the game remain consistent at and are independent of the scale at which Scrum is organized.
Gunther Verheyen, independent Scrum Caretaker and Scrum practitioner since 2003, does not aspire teaching you how to scale Scrum or introduce a new cookbook scaling framework. In this interactive workshop, he will collaboratively explore with you the principles that apply when the need arises to maintain a product with more people than can conveniently work as one team, and the move to a “Multi-Team Scrum” setup is required. The workshop will include selected cases from “The Scrum Caretaker Book of Exercises“.
- Date: Monday 24 April 2022 (13.30-17.00h CET).

What to expect in an online setting?
Our online workshops and classes are very much case-driven with plenty of room for interaction and conversation. We keep them as low-tech as possible:
- We will connect on Zoom and use Zoom break-out rooms for discussions in smaller teams.
- We will use Google Jamboard in a virtual team space on Google drive.
- The workshop facilitator might occasionally use a PowerPoint slide deck and a physical flip chart.
