Release Train Engineer – The Master Scrum Master

When scaling Agile at an enterprise level, coordination and alignment across multiple teams is challenging. Whilst Agile teams are self-organising and empowered, someone needs to steer the train to keep it on the tracks to facilitate program level processes and execution, escalate impediments, manage issues, mitigate risks, and drive continuous improvement.
This is my presentation form the LAST (Lean Agile System Thinking) Conference in Melbourne where I shared my experiences of being a Release Train Engineer (RTE) on a digital transformation project across a large government enterprise and explored the challenges and lessons learnt. In particular, I focused on the Scrum of Scrums and how the RTE is essentially the Master Scrum Master of the Release Train and demonstrated how to ensure Scrum Masters are working together towards achieving the goals for the Train’s Product Increment.
