Over the past decade, agile scaling concepts in organizations have gained considerable momentum and renewed attention especially from business practice . While agility has its roots in software development, the concept of agile at scale aims at more generally applying agile practices in organizations across different industries. Academic research is serving this development in different disciplines, most notably the management and information systems fields. This short paper takes stock of the last 12 years of scholarly research by developing a systematic content analysis of 26 case studies dealing with agile scaling concepts in the context of digital transformation. In the attempt to narrow the gap between research and practice, we focus on case studies as a strategic research methodology providing rich insights of complex real-life processes such as agile scaling. The findings synthesize the current state of knowledge in this regard and offer new research avenues contributing to the present agile scaling discourse.
