Abstract/Description

Scaling Agile means that we apply its principles to large, even very large, groups of people. When we do this, we allow those people to be more connected to their work and its impact, despite being part of a huge system. The result is better software, better business outcomes. But how do you do it?

**Structure**, like the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), provides an excellent starting place for building an Agile organization. But how do you begin to implement that structure in your organization? We will bring in real-life examples of how companies have found their value streams and restructured around feature teams to improve results. Through a worksheet, we will begin to guide you through beginning to rethink your organization's structure.

**Vision**, supplemented with structure, can harness those talented people toward meaningful goals and the right outcomes. Agile at scale requires a strong product vision--even in an IT environment--and the leadership to keep everyone aligned. We’ll share Rally’s own internal visioning and annual planning process to help you imagine a new way to lead.

**Visibility** from information radiators allow Agile teams to execute effectively at scale and aide decentralized decision-making that maps to a strategic vision. We will present information radiators that provide that visibility, and help you think about what data you need in order to deliver great work, at scale.
