Full title: Practices for Scaling Lean & Agile Development: Large, Multisite, & Offshore Product Development with Large-Scale Scrum



Reflecting our work over recent years, this book explores scaling lean and agile development with Large-Scale Scrum. It was written with my co-author Bas Vodde, who has long and in-depth experience with very large agile product development and enterprise transformations (at Nokia Networks and NSN), and like me, has worked in large embedded systems.

This books explores the concrete practices for large-scale lean product development or agile development with large-scale Scrum, including requirements, contracts, architecture and design, agile offshore development, large-scale multisite development, coordination, and planning multi-hundred-person product group development, and more.

Companion Book: Scaling Lean & Agile Development: Thinking & Organizational Tools

This book is related to a second companion book that explores the foundation of organizational redesign for scaling lean and agile product development: Scaling Lean & Agile Development: Thinking & Organizational Tools for Large-Scale Scrum. These thinking tools and organizational redesign tools are necessary to lay the foundation for successful adoption of new practices. Without leadership (and others) that understand and institute these core elements, it is difficult to succeed with applying the practices.
