Achieve 5-10x Faster Market Delivery with Scrum at Scale

Achieve 5-10x Faster Market Delivery with Scrum at Scale

One of the Netherlands' largest DIY retail franchises had a siloed management structure and projects that took 3-12 months or even longer to get to market. They had a waterfall delivery style, with the entirety of the delivery at the end and no early value delivery for customers. Registered Scrum@Scale Trainer Serge Beaumont's approach started with the creation of cross-functional, autonomous teams, each solely responsible for a different part of the process. This allowed for work to proceed very quickly with each team simultaneously able to complete their part of a project without first waiting on another team. The results were immediate and impressive. The team achieved 5-10x faster market delivery to customers, there was now alignment between what was expected and what was delivered, delivery was made in smaller chunks allowing for early value delivery to customers, and e-Commerce sales soared.
