Enterprise Scrum Introduction

  • Lean Startup
  • Blue Ocean Strategy
  • Beyond Budgeting
  • Business Model Generation
  • Value Proposition Design
  • Exponential Organizations
  • Management 3.0
  • etc.
  • instead of calling it “Product Owner”, we call it a “Business Owner”, that way we don’t confuse other business people with the word “product”.
  • instead of calling it ScrumMaster we call it “Coach” and
  • Team is still Team.
  • Business Value is defined explicitly through a balance of the metrics (see below)
  • instead of calling it “Product Backlog”, we call it “Value List” — a list of things that when DONE add value. That way we don’t confuse other business people with the word “product”.
  • instead of calling them “PBIs”, we call them “VLIs” or “value list items”, each of them with a DOR, DOD, and other attributes. That way we don’t confuse other business people with the word “product”.
  • instead of calling them Sprints, we call the time-boxes Cycles. Cycles can be recursive without limit. So you can have a yearly cycle, having quarterly cycles, that have 2 week cycles
  • VLIs still have to be DONE according to their DOD every Cycle, but not necessarily to “build a product”. Instead, any type of work can be achieved, measured, forecasted and reported.
  • projections as usual, are made with measurements over metrics of what got DONE (see below), so Release Planning is naturally included for all Cycles and at all levels.
  • techniques of different types and at different levels can be included with specific parameters and insert them as 1) new steps, 2) to get work done into the framework relevant to the purpose of the instance (see below).
  • For example, techniques can be added for 1) facilitating work like User Stories, or 2) like insertable NEW steps in an instance like “Release Planning”, or like “Architectural Scan”, added as NEW activities in the Initial Value List/Wave Projection.
  • the only mandated report is the ScrumBoard
  • In contrast with Scrum with 1 metric, the velocity, in Enterprise Scrum we are FREE to have as many metrics as you want/need. For example, we could track, profit, revenue, incidents, effort, customer satisfaction, compliance levels, etc.
