Scrum of Scrums - scale Scrum from a team level to an organization
Scrum is a cutting-edge software-development framework for Agile. In a nutshell, Scrum implies breaking development into time boxed iterations, or sprints, so that a team works on the most relevant objective for that time. Yet there’s a need for coordination and management system for multiple scrum teams, and that’s what Scrum-of-Scrums is for.
How is Scrum of Scrums organized? Typically it clusters around a theme or other work item. The scrum of scrums is a short, no more than 15 minutes democratic meeting. A facilitator, or scrum-master, is appointed. Each team sends a representative to a Scrum-of-Scrums meeting where cross-team issues discussed and solved. He or she delivers a so-called stand-up, a report on the situation in his team. Scrum-of-Scrums participants are not meant to discuss the development process – instead, they focus on risks, impediments, dependencies, and assumptions for the project.
