Scaling for the Hummingbird Delivery Ecosystem begins with the first stood-up hover, comprised of 3-4 crews and a few specialists and is long-standing and continuously funded. The hover level is the only scaling mechanism recognized; there are no other configurations or levels above the hover. Any need to scale the amount of people to handle a large product or solution effort is done by standing up additional, cross-pollinating hovers. No additional oversight roles are added in a multi-hover configuration. This frameless, non-hierarchical approach gives the perpetual-discovery, continuous-delivery ecosystem a much higher chance of succeeding in any size company, regardless of how many portfolios or product lines exist.
