Product Description

From the Back Cover

Lean and Agile Development for Large-Scale Products: Key Practices for Sustainable Competitive Success

 

Increasingly, large product-development organizations are turning to lean thinking, agile principles and practices, and large-scale Scrum to sustainably and quickly deliver value and innovation. Drawing on their long experience leading and guiding lean and agile adoptions for large, multisite, and offshore product development, internationally recognized consultant and best-selling author Craig Larman and former leader of the agile transformation at Nokia Networks Bas Vodde share the key action tools needed for success.

 

Coverage includes

  • Frameworks for large-scale Scrum for multihundred-person product groups
  • Testing and building quality in
  • Product management and the end of the “contract game” between business and R&D
  • Envisioning a large release, and planning for multiteam development
  • Low-quality legacy code: why it’s created, and how to stop it
  • Continuous integration in a large multisite context
  • Agile architecting
  • Multisite or offshore development
  • Contracts and outsourced development

 In a competitive environment that demands ever-faster cycle times and greater innovation, the practices inspired by lean thinking and agile principles are ever-more relevant. Practices for Scaling Lean & Agile Development will help people realize a lean enterprise―and deliver on the significant benefits of agility.

 

In addition to the action tools in this text, see the companion book Scaling Lean & Agile Development: Thinking and Organizational Tools for Large-Scale Scrumfor complementary foundation tools.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for Large-Scale Agile 22 July 2012
By Michael Sahota - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is in my opinion, invaluable for anyone looking at scaling Agile/Scrum to beyond just one team.

It has clear, practical advice. In particular, the clarification of the dangers of component teams is particularly valuable as well as communication patterns between teams.

As an Agile coach, I have personally applied some of the patterns with success and sadly have witnessed many of the anti-patterns play out.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, with many excellent examples 11 Feb. 2014
By Mark W Rice - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is an amazing collection of practices within lean & agile (and Scrum). While targeting scaling, these are valuable for single site users too. These are very practical slices from many projects with many applicable components. The wide array of experiments that Craig and Bas have collected here is of tremendous value, and done in a way that is not imposing their solutions on any other context. The strong message is to facilitate the teams to consider what works for them, whether it be these ideas, variants, or something else entirely. These often include WHY they an idea was successful or not, which greatly helps in understanding how it might fit in a given context. If you're serious about using lean and agile concepts, I highly recommend this book. (NOTE ABOUT THE COMPANION: I also recommend the companion book, but unlike a prior reviewer, I highly recommend this even without the prior... but you are missing out if you don't also read the other.)

Anyone interested in SAFe, would learn a lot from this book. I don't know why there is so much contention around the usefulness of LeSS vs. SAFe when they are comprised of such similar sets of ideas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book but 31 Aug. 2010
By Steven Koh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The content is rich and covers almost everything about scrum.
This is a very good book on agile development, unfortunately, inappropriately named.

1) Readers who bought this book, probably are interested in the additional stuff on multisite and offshore, and not the everything about Agile Development. Thus, this book can be, should be a lot thinner.

2) The book contains lots of good examples. Unfortunately, I have to jump around the book to read them. Thus, the organization of the content can be improved.
