We report the experience of scaling Scrum from one single team to seven feature teams. Our case study is the leading online payment system in Brazil. We introduce the background of the experiment and describe how we were able to scale Scrum in a team that had been previously unsuccessful in implementing it. Then we present ``The Mega Framework'' -- a consistent set of practices and meetings derived from our experience for coordinating the teams and the stakeholders. It improves communication, aligns expectations and ultimately enables scaling agile development. We also discuss the lessons we learned while creating this framework and how we continuously improve it.
