Below depicts a typical Agile for Patriots (AFP) practicum utilizing Scrum, which is a single-team framework of one product owner, one Scrum master, and up to eight developers.

Building and enhancing the above framework, team PhoenIX utilized a Scaled Scrum framework known as Nexus to improve collaboration and cross-functional development amongst interdependent teams. 

As depicted below, team PhoenIX’s utilization of Nexus provided a remote global perspective that enhanced a viable understanding of the complexities across the product development industry.
