Thorben Pantring: Surviving the Scrum Scaling Chaos, Managing a 20-25 Member Team

In this episode, Thorben reflects on a team that had reached a breaking point when it grew to 20+ members. Faced with the overwhelming workload for the Product Owner and Scrum Master, Thorben and his colleagues divided the team into three, only to realize there was no support available. Thorben suggests a Scrum of Scrums for POs and emphasizes the complexity of scaling Scrum. To address the chaos, they divided the product into customer-focused areas and created a single Scrum team for each. Embracing large-scale Scrum, Thorben advises training leadership and using systems thinking to manage multiple teams. The journey involved starting small and incrementally adding teams to the system.

In this episode, we refer to the podcast episodes with Konstantin Ribel.
