Integration Team in Multi-team Scrum


If one team in Scrum not enough, it’s advisable use Multi Team. But here you get one more problem – how to manage more than one team. And the answer: use the Integration team. With Multi Team your Scrum will look a little bit different.

Multi-team Sprint Planning

  • All the teams or at least representatives from each team get together
  • Product Owner gives the vision for the Sprint
  • Representatives figure out dependencies
  • Representatives figure out how to minimize cross-team dependencies
  • Then each team make their usual Sprint Planning meetings

Integration Team’s Daily Scrum

Not the same as a regular team’s Daily Scrum – not “3 Questions”
This meeting kann last less than 15 minutes
Goal: Is the integration on track?
– “Did we have any trouble integrating yesterday?”
– “Are there any likely integration troubles facing us today?”

Multi-team Sprint Review

Goal: Show off the done, working, integrated software and gather feedback

Multi-team Sprint Retrospectives

  • Representatives from the teams come together
  • Discuss and identify any cross-team problems
  • Representatives go into their regular Sprint Retrospectives
