November Meeting - The Nexus Framework w/ Dr. Charles Suscheck

November Meeting - The Nexus Framework w/ Dr. Charles Suscheck

When: November 08, 2018  (Second Thursday) 

Networking: 6:00 - 7:30 pm (networking starts at 5:30 pm)

The Nexus Framework presented by Dr. Charles Suscheck

The premise for Scrum.org’s Nexus is that ability to scale depends on your ability to continuously identify and remove dependencies, integrate work at all levels, and create and inspect holistic increments. Nexus is Scrum, scaled and tuned to manage dependencies with multiple teams working on one product large. It creates a communication pathway that identifies and resolves dependencies by building on the existing Scrum framework and values. The result is a scaling framework for development groups of up to 100 people to create one reified Increment or product with minimal overhead - maximized outcome.

If you are looking for a framework to take advantage of a product mindset, Nexus and Professional Scaled Scrum is an answer based on Scrum. If you are looking for a project-based scaling mechanism, look at other frameworks.
