Join us for a high-level comparison of popular Agile Scaling frameworks including Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), Scrum at Scale (S@S), and Large Scale Scrum (LeSS). We’ll highlight the relevant differences between these frameworks, identify some of the challenges that all Agile adoption and scaling initiatives are likely to encounter, and share Eliassen Group experiences from the many successful Agile Scaling initiatives we’ve supported.

He has a proven track record of delivering quality software products and cultural transformations as Director of Engineering, Director of Quality Assurance, Agile Coach, Enterprise Solutions Architect, ScrumMaster, Software Development Manager, and hands-on Software Engineer.
