Scaling Scrum (3-4 teams) (Part 1)

Scaling Scrum is easy, have a look at the Scrum guide at . You have a number of teams that each operate as normal and a member from each of the team attends an additional daily scrum. Yes, it all makes sense, but it is a lot easier to say than do, even on a small scale. There are a few practical things that newer teams and organisations need to think about and do other things will descend into a state of anarchy.

By and large there are two sets of circumstances where you need to scale.

The easy way to write acceptance criteria

We all know that a user story should not aim to capture all the detail about a requirement or business need. It is more of a promise that a conversation will take place, the options explored and some work will be done that will deliver that business value.
One of the key things to make sure of, when writing user stories, is to have a clear view as to when a piece of work is completed. The normal way of doing this is to document a set of acceptance criteria against a user story. What we don't want though is to write a 20 page requirements document as acceptance criteria.
