When introducing heavy-weight scaling methodologies, teams often find that the added overhead slows down the teams and distracts from the essence and benefits of Scrum. Instead, created the Nexus Framework by minimally extending the Scrum Framework to include ways that help solve the dependency and collaboration challenges of cross-team work. Since Nexus enhances the foundational elements of Scrum, it reinforces the benefits of Scrum while also being familiar to those that have used Scrum.

The Scaled Professional Scrum™ (SPS) with Nexus course, builds on the Nexus framework by introducing complementary practices and techniques proven to help teams scale.

Course Description

In today's fast-paced world, Scrum teams often face limitations in the scope of their work and the value they can deliver. When scaling to multiple teams, challenges like cross-team dependencies, self-management, transparency, and accountability can arise. Traditional heavyweight scaling methodologies often add cumbersome overhead, detracting from the core benefits of Scrum. To address these issues, developed the Nexus Framework™, a streamlined extension of Scrum designed to facilitate cross-team collaboration and dependency resolution without sacrificing the essence of Scrum.
