Description

Large-scale agile frameworks are becoming increasingly popular as a means to scale agile in organisations. The underlying expectation is to profit from the benefits agile methods exhibit in smaller contexts. Scaling agile proves to be an intricate task and has exposed challenges and success factors over various studies. Most scaled agile frameworks focus on implementation of methods, practices and routines, which entails certain challenges for agile transformations. Although some mention is made of agile mindset in scaling activities, the current situation suggests that agile mindset as the core of agility has not been leveraged to its full extent and is underrepresented. To address this matter and re-conceptualise large-scale agile, a new holistic concept is developed that utilises the socio-technical systems thinking in creating an agile mindset approach for scaling agile in organisations.
