Scaling Scrum Across Modern Enterprises

Scaling Scrum Across Modern Enterprises describes how modern Scrum and Lean-Agile practices help integrate and synchronize multiple teams’ efforts to collaborate on large-scale product development and delivery activities. Rather than focus on one particular strategy, the book takes an agnostic approach to introduce and compare the leading Scrum and Lean-Agile scaling strategies in a single reference source.

Agile practices have their roots in the software industry but are similarly useful across all business types, government agencies, and non-profits. Moreover, we live in a digital era where computing systems and software enhance business processes and product functionality across all industries. Therefore, modern Scrum and Lean-Agile practices help improve agility across all value creation activities, while simultaneously supporting business agility on an enterprise scale.

Organizations that can rapidly evaluate alternatives and competitively respond to changes, and do so from a customer-centric and value-added perspective, have a distinct competitive advantage. This book is a must-read for all organizations that seek a competitive edge on all fronts of their business.

Second, even seemingly trivial tasks, like designing the book covers, can turn into large projects in their own right. Such was the case with designing the SDLC series book covers, and the artwork titled “ENGAGED IN OUR DIGITAL WORLD.”

The design concept began with the notion that we are all connected to a digital world; a world that is built by the efforts of software and IT-based systems developers. My book designer, Adam Hay, of Adam Hay Studio, and I saw several artificial intelligence (AI) based artworks that suggested such connections. While I liked the imagery of some of the AI-based artworks, they typically included pictures of androids or robots. I wanted to make the point that it’s humans who are increasingly connected to our digital world. Besides the digital connections, I also wanted to convey the role software programming plays in forming such digital connections…
