My March 2006 column summarizes techniques for scaling agile software development methods such as doing some initial modeling at the start of the project, holding "scrums of scrums", hiring good people, adopting common guidance, and delivering working software regularly. The article is entitled "Supersize Me" and is available at http://www.sdmagazine.com/documents/s=10020/sdm0603g/0603g.html.

The next time someone tells you that agile is only for small teams, point them to this article.

I think Ken Schwaber mentioned recently that he or Jeff Sutherland (can't remember correctly) was working on a 200-man Scrum project.

Too bad SD requires a registration, that would've been an interesting article.

If you live in the US, you can get a free subscription to the print magazine and to monthly newsletters (I write an agile one). See SD Subcriptions.
