Description

Agile methodologies have long been successfully applied to smaller software development projects with limited team sizes. In recent years, some firms have started to transfer agile methodologies to the whole organization. However, large-scale agile transformations are challenging and require a comprehensive view of cultural, operational, and strategic aspects. This paper systematically reviews available large-scale agile practices from the literature and provides a holistic overview of different large-scale agile practices. In total, four practice categories, 11 practices, and 19 example concepts were found. The categories are organized in a framework and serve as a possible entry point for researchers and managers to approach the topic of large-scale agile development more efficiently and economically.

Practices for Large-Scale Agile Transformations: A Systematic Literature Review

Agile methodologies have long been successfully applied to smaller software development projects with limited team sizes. In recent years, some firms have started to transfer agile methodologies to the whole organization. However, large-scale agile transformations are challenging and require a comprehensive view of cultural, operational, and strategic aspects. This paper systematically reviews available large-scale agile practices from the literature and provides a holistic overview of different large-scale agile practices. In total, four practice categories, 11 practices, and 19 example concepts were found. The categories are organized in a framework and serve as a possible entry point for researchers and managers to approach the topic of large-scale agile development more efficiently and economically.
