There are multiple thoughts and frameworks related to scaling Scrum to coordinate multiple teams. There is a lot of attention on frameworks such as Scrum@Scale (Scrum@Scale Guide), Large Scale Scrum (LeSS), Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe), "Spotify Model", and others.
Before you pick a scaling framework or evolve your own, there are many considerations including, do you really need to scale your current approach or should you restructure & "descale" first? What problem are you really trying to solve? How are you measuring improvement/progress? Are you doing team-scale Scrum well yet? Is you leadership actively involved in improvements? Are you organized around product capabilities with dedicated cross-functional teams, or still using matrixed functional teams? Are you prioritizing well?
FYI, the Scrum Alliance now endorses two scaling Frameworks: Scrum@Scale by Jeff Sutherland, and Large-Scale Scrum (LeSS) by Craig Larman & Bas Vodde. I'm trained in both, plus SAFe. I'd be happy to discuss your situation, scaling challenges, and possible solutions.
