Frequently, an object or a product is too big for a team. Tactical scaling allows multiple teams to coordinat and work on a joint goal. We call this a unit. Examples are a program, a product line or a service unit.
For the collaboration of multiple Teams there are distinctive strategies:
- In Solution-pattern One: The Common Stage teams perform joined events in each Sprint.
- In solution-Pattern two: Common Stage is the strategy to introduce one tactical cycle, which is "wrapped around" the Team cycli. Such a tactical cyclus we call a „stage“. One stage contains multiple Sprints.
- In Solution-pattern Two: Common Stage a tactical cycle is implemented "around the team cycle". Such a tactical cycle we call "stage". A stage consists of multiple sprints.
The elements of both patterns can be combined to any size. Even using the pattern Two events in the sprint can be carried out jointly.
