We define a “mid-scale” organization to be when several business stakeholders are driving initiatives. A handful of Product Managers are needed to coordinate with these stakeholders and act as their agents. Product Owners act as liaisons between product management and the teams. Shared services are almost certainly present and teams are likely organized into mostly independent programs. Typically, the size of the development group is 100 to 1000.
To do an assessment at mid-scale first requires knowing how to do an assessment at a small scale. If you have not yet done so, read Using FLEX to Perform an Assessment for Small-Scale Organizations.
Here are the main differences between small and mid-scale assessments.
How to manage the above situations is briefly covered in Product Manager and Product Owner case study. More will be written later.
