Scaling Agile means that we apply its principles to large, even very large, groups of people. When we do this, we allow those people to be more connected to their work and its impact, despite being part of a huge system.
This process is effective because we scale Agile by fractals, meaning we create similarly shaped structures at different levels of scale throughout the organization. And rather than build bigger teams, we add more small, cross-functional teams and stitch them together into a larger whole. This way, the team remains the core unit and owns its working agreements, information radiators, and policies.
