Agile software development methods are conventionally applied in small, collocated development teams. There is growing interest, from researchers and practitioners, in agile methods applied to large-scale projects with several cooperating teams developing complex systems.
Large-scale agile is now a hot topic in software engineering. Agile frameworks, with all their benefits and challenges are being widely discussed and applied. The IEEE Software special issue on large-scale agile put together by Torgeir Dingsøyr, Davide Falessi and Ken Power is expected to come out in Mar./Apr. 2019.
How to apply agile methods to large projects was identified as the "top burning research question" by practitioners at XP2010. At XP2013 to XP2018, this workshop has addressed research challenges in large-scale agile development and identified topics such as inter-team coordination, large project organization, release planning and architecture and practices to scaling agile methods
