Even as teams increase their delivery effectiveness through XP and Agile practices, they are still challenged to work effectively within larger programs of work and portfolios of projects. And traditional program management is challenged to effectively leverage individual team Agile practices across a broader context. Too often this problem is ignored by traditional management, and the XP team merely works around their non-Agile context. Or the question is simplistically framed as ‘scaling Agile’ for larger teams. In this talk Sean Doran will introduce some ideas to more effectively frame the question and to apply Agile principles in a larger context.
