Event description
Effective collaboration is achievable for distributed Scrum teams at scale - learn how in this hybrid event

About this Event

Does Scrum@Scale work with distributed teams? Scrum, as originally outlined in the Scrum Guide, is a framework for developing, delivering, and sustaining complex products by a single team. Since its inception, its usage has extended to the creation of products, processes, services, and systems that require the efforts of multiple teams. Scrum@Scale was developed to efficiently coordinate this new ecosystem of teams, but often it is believed that Scrum and Scrum@Scale can't be "successful” when the element of distributed teams is introduced.

In this hybrid event (a virtual conference with optional “live” in-person events) created by Scrum@Scale, LLC and Nureva, attendees will hear from industry leaders that have specialized in Scrum at Scale and Distributed Teams. They’ll discuss the common challenges organizations face when implementing Scrum at Scale, and review real-world solutions and tools they have tested to ensure remote workers are supported, productive, and aligned.



100% of proceeds from Scrum Around the World will be donated to Peace Through Prosperity, a global non-profit dedicated to improving the environment for peace building within marginalized and conflict affected communities by nurturing prosperity and alleviating poverty. Peace Through Prosperity empowers micro-entrepreneurs to become better owner-managers of their businesses so that they can build a future for themselves, their families, and their communities. The organization leverages design thinking and the core principles and values of Agility to design low-cost, immediate-impact social transformation programs. Once validated, these programs are open-sourced for others to use in alleviating poverty and improving livelihood security. Learn more about Peace Through Prosperity here.


In this hybrid event, there is a virtual component that allows attendees to join from anywhere and a "live" in-person component that allows attendees to network and engage with their local community during the presentation. There are four physical locations available for registrants, and space is limited.
