Scaling agile is always difficult. Craig Larman, the co-creator of Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) typically advises that you don't do it, and if you do, don't do it across multiple locations, and not using offshore teams.
Wantonly ignoring all of this advice, Gez Smith has been scaling agile in HSBC for the last year or so, across the UK, Poland, India and Hong Kong, using LeSS, Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD).

Gez has been working with agile for over 12 years, for clients including 10 Downing Street, the BBC Trust, Lloyds Banking Group and Glastonbury Festival. Currently the Global Head of Agile for HSBC, responsible for scaling agile across multiple countries and business areas, he writes, vlogs and podcasts extensively about agile leadership, recruitment, HR, transformation and communications.
