Many digital ventures start with a small team. But regardless if you work for a small startup or for a large enterprise, as demand and success knock at the door, that small team becomes overloaded and needs to branch out. But how? We will look at different ways to scale agile teams, the various frameworks which exist to guide us in that process, their uptake, cost and complexity, and crucially which tools and skills are required to do that transition successfully, both when we are transforming a distributed project across continents using only digital tools, or if we are scaling in a small warehouse IRL.
