Spotify breaks the rules when Scaling their Agile Engineering Culture

“One of the big success factors at Spotify is the Agile Engineering Culture.” – Henrik Kniberg

Spotify started as a Scrum company in 2008 but the standard Scrum practices were getting in the way as they grew, so they made them optional.  Here’s an awesome video how Spotify scaled their Agile Engineering Culture.  They decided that:

  • Agile matters more than Scrum
  • Agile Principles matters more than any specific Practices
  • Agile Coach is needed rather than ScrumMaster (Servant Leaders more than Process Masters)
