Scrum is the most common, and popular, Agile Development framework in the world. Like all frameworks, Scrum encapsulates a number of Patterns -- each representing a proven solution to a common problem. Most of these Patterns come from outside Scrum, and are the real lessons of Scrum; they can be used and combined in other forms for various reasons. For example, two of these lessens are that difficult work should be done by Well-Formed Teams and that proper Governance requires a strict Accountability Model.
This book accomplishes two main goals:
- It shows, by using Patterns, how Scrum has changed throughout the years -- how it has changed from Original Scrum to Modern Scrum. In the process, it explains many of the misunderstandings about Scrum, particularly with respect to the Product Owner role.
- It shows how to Scale Scrum through the use of Patterns and uses the Patterns as the basis for evaluating several Scrum Scaling Frameworks -- including Large Scale Scrum (LeSS) and the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe).
By focusing on Patterns and not the details of Scrum, this book will give you a deep understanding of why Scrum works and how it can be Scaled for your Organization.
