Scrum at Scale certification helps to develop an agile method of how to bring a collaborative approach to develop, process and service in an efficient manner. Scrum@Scale framework gives a collaborative approach of how to bring efficiency and accuracy in the workflow based software Industry. Adapting the techniques of Scrum at Scale is of great use when we come across the Software Industry.
Though as the demand of Scrum@Scale is increasing companies like John Deer, Schlumberger, Enea, Siemens and many more have implemented Scrum at Scale for large scale projects.
The main force behind all these things which drives the efficient performance and efficient result is how effectively one puts the principles of Scrum@Scale Framework into work. As multiple MNCs work to deliver quality results with working of Scrum at Scale, it is a necessity to know at first to understand how one will implement its concept at a mass scale.
The Scrum@Scale is the framework by which fundamentals of Scrum could easily imply within a group of 200-300 people. It opens a gateway to its implementation within a large section of people. So, let's dive in and learn more about how Scrum at Scale works and how it could be governed to produce effective results rapidly.
What is Scrum@Scale?
Scrum@Scale is the fundamental of Scrum Framework by which concepts of Scrum could quickly be implemented within multiple teams consisting of hundreds or even thousands of scrum practitioners. Previously Scrum was used for a small group of teams, but with the evolution of Scrum@Scale, it became possible to implement the concept of Scrum to thousands of multiple teams within an organisation.
Scrum at Scale is the scrum framework which consists of components which play a vital role in scaling scrum roles, events, artifacts of the whole of the institute through a set of rules that combines all in one. Scrum at Scale helps the multiple teams within an organisation to coordinate with multiple networks for the prioritised goals, with ease.
It drives a value-based culture to the organisation to attain linear scalability and business agility. The process in Scrum@Scale is structured through different layers to manage an appropriate scaling with product, team, system and management.
Jeff Sutherland the co-creator of Scrum, came up with this idea to make practitioners of Scrum implement its fundamentals at large scale. As the Scrum framework proved successful for small teams, the practice of Scrum with Scrum at Scale was also successful and is now widely used as it makes the coordination easy for multiple teams.
With success rates coming from all across the globe, the practice of Scrum at Scale is in much demand nowadays. Though as the demand of Scrum at Scale is increasing companies like John Deer, Schlumberger, Enea, Siemens and many more have implemented Scrum@Scale for large scale projects.
What does at Scale mean in Scrum at Scale Framework?
At Scale simply means multiple scrum teams working on a common goal. Scrum at scale is an optimised and functional framework which aims at attaining highest value with sustainable efficiency within multiple-valued team coordination. The framework of Scrum@Scale helps to address and react to complex problems very quickly and makes the team coordination linear and gives an agile development method.
Scrum at scale is lightweight which means it gives the minimum viable bureaucracy. Being lightweight it is also easy to understand and only involves the Scrum team. But when it comes to mastering, it becomes a little tough as it requires implementing a new operating model to govern the work and process flow.
How many teams can be coordinated using Scrum at Scale?
To scale Scrum with multiple teams, Jeff Sutherland, the man who proposed the theory of Scrum says that one can create many teams with optimal size to implement the Scrum operations. The teams comprise a Scrum of Scrums with a representative who leads that very Scrum team. These representatives are often called Scrum Masters as they coordinate the work and process flow to hold an efficient Scaled daily Scrum (SDS).
The team at Scrum share a common pattern and visualise the framework collectively. While scaling Scrum with various teams, it is needed to address the backlogs rapidly and make the planning be collaborative across all the team. This not only widens the approach but also makes the team coordination much more effective.
How do you Scale Operations?
Scaling the various operations in the Scrum framework must and should be done on various parameters. To Scale the operations mean to analyze the process and productive workflow thoroughly to give the expected and delivered product same.
The Various parameters which thus scales the various operation are the following:
1) Battling the Complexity:
Developing the measures so as to resolve the complexity and gain an agile development method is not as easy as it sounds. And so there is complexity in various operations done to maintain a structured Scrum framework model. The Scale gives the analyzed data of how appropriately and efficiently the members of Scrum are working.
2) Regulation of Production and Service gateways:
The production and service are two pillars of an organization on grounds of which various operations are performed. And so they need to be configured with optimized techniques. Scaling the operations gives the overview of how to use these techniques to regulate the production and monitor the service which is provided.
3) Overviewing the entire process:
Overviewing the process gives an outflow of the section to improve and the section which are doing good. It helps to estimate what exactly is getting short or what more could be done to outreach focused and productive results. Scaling the operation gives the data and an analyzed answer of what and how to focus on to get an improved result and satisfactory growth.

What are the key principles behind Scrum@Scale?
Scrum needs an analysed and evaluated approach with every process involved in the work process. And that needs an appropriate emphasis on the principles of Scrum which is must if one wants to get efficient performance, quality results and valuable solutions.
However, ScrumGuide does not refer to any principles; it is based on the following key aspects.
- Control Over Empirical Process: This very principle of Scrum is based on the three fundamentals or ideas of Scrum, which involves transparency, inspection and adaptation. With the above fundamentals, the foundation of Agile Operating System is installed, which aims to create a small group of teams who facilitate to deliver sprint at an early stage.
- Self Organisation: This principle of Scrum helps to reduce dependency and improve workflow efficiency. This leads to Scrum team members innovating among themselves and organising to know how analytically they can deliver quality performance with best results and solutions through the desired set of skills. At Scrum at Scale, the fundamental is to deliver the concept of scaling the team with multiple team coordination called as Scrum of Scrums(SOS).
- Collaboration: This principle emphasises on the core value of awareness, articulation and appropriation. It helps to develop and nurture a system which delivers working for cross-functional teams with regular interactions to deliver work value with a collaborative approach. The collaboration aims to maximise the flow with an increase in performance of the team with time.
- Value-Based Prioritisation: This principle helps to recognise the values of the Work Process at an early stage to deliver the maximum business value from start to end with every step involved in the work process. This helps to operate with a sustainable pathway to enrich the team and speed up the customer based feedback loop.
- Time-Boxing: This principle emphasises on the fact that time is a minimal resource, and how should one consider it as a limiting constraint in Scrum. The time box elements of Scrum are Sprints, Standup Meetings, Sprint Planning Meetings, Sprint Review Meetings etc. This helps to make the impediments and design a pattern to resolve the backlogs within a very less amount of time.
- Iterative and Incremental Development: This process emphasises on the fact of evolving with the continuous change to meet the customer's requirements. It also focuses on the role of Product Owner and the responsibility of the other member to deliver iterative development to the organisation. This helps the product owners to have a strategic vision for product prioritisation with backlog decomposition, refinement and release planning.

There are no specific criteria to join the Scrum at Scale Training class. But the certification is best in use for those who want to be a part of the Scrum Team or want to boost up their career as a Scrum professional Practitioner. We recommend you to refer to ScrumGuide.
What skills will I acquire if I join the Scrum@Scale Certification Training c
- You will learn about the fundamentals of Scrum and Agile and how they are implemented in a work process at large scale.
- You will discover various terminologies of Agile, Scrum, Scrum Concepts and the complete process of Scrum@Scale.
- You will get to know about the multiple roles which are involved in Scrum and scope of the Scrum@Scale Practitioner.
- You will learn how to deliver the sprints within time and how to implement the fundamentals of Scrum@Scale in Scrum of Scrums coordination.
- It will help you to learn to improve transparency which will further enhance the team efficiency and performance for a collaborative approach.
Both provide solutions for multi-team implementation for Scrum. Whereas Scrum@Scale implements a purisitic version of Scrum@Scale. Mainly it works on iterative and incremental delivery each sprint and does not prescro]obe for any standard organisational structure. SAFe gives us a prescribed organisation structure and supports delivery of working software after 5 iterations
SAFe prescribes a sequential set of events prAACTO=ICES, and stakeholder relativity with hierarchical roles whereas Scrum@Scale suggests the evolution of Structure based on scrum values and minimal viable bureaucracy.
SAFe structure across multiple organisations would be the same but Scrum@Scale structure may be different. Scrum@Scale is slowly getting popular. Even pioneer SAFe implementers like John Deer are now moving to Scrum@Scale.
