Scrum at Scale Academic Papers, Reports, and Resources

Scrum@Scale was created by Dr. Jeff Sutherland, co-creator of Scrum. As a former cancer researcher and medical school professor, he designed Scrum to scale like a biological organism from a single cell. With his academic background, Jeff understands how important it is to ground practice in research and data. Following his lead, we will make relevant resources that have influenced Scrum@Scale as visible and accessible as possible. This list is a work in progress and is not comprehensive and we would like to build it out with the help of the Scrum@Scale community. If there is a paper, book, conference proceeding, or article that you would like to see added, please email webadmin@scrumatscale.com.

Scrum and CMMI Going from Good to Great

Owning the Sky with Agile: Building a Fighter Jet Faster, Cheaper, Better with Scrum

Advanced military systems are some of the most expensive and most complex research, design, and manufacturing challenges in the world. Many companies are seeking new ways of working that will control costs while delivering the highest quality. Saab Defense has adopted an Agile process to address the issue in both hardware and software teams to produce a new multi-role strike fighter, the JAS 9E Saab Gripen.

Fully Distributed Scrum: Linear Scalability Between San Francisco & India

Xebia (The Netherlands) started localized projects with half Dutch and half Indian team members. After establishing a localized velocity of five times their waterfall competitors on the same project, they moved the Indian members of the team to India and showed stable velocity with fully distributed teams. The ability to achieve hyper-productivity with distributed, outsourced teams was shown to be a repeatable process.

Hitting The Wall: What to Do When High Performing Scrum Teams Overwhelm Operations

All-at-once Scrum implementations require total commitment to change, high level management support and aggressive removal of impediments. Several company-wide implementations are known to the authors but none of them had to deal with the complexity of a large, mission-critical, enterprise software product. Here we describe how a Scrum team engineered a continuous integration environment for hundreds of software developers on two continents within a few weeks.

The Emergence of a Business Object Component Architecture

Object technology, a necessary but not sufficient condition for software reuse, requires an infrastructure that supports plug compatible Business Object Components for fast and flexible delivery of new or enhanced products to the marketplace. This paper is a retrospective view on key conceptual issues driving the standardization of a Business Object Component Architecture (BOCA) within the Object Management Group (OMG).

Full Bibliography

In addition to the highlighted papers above we’ve included Jeff Sutherland’s bibliography below, range from his cancer research in the 1970s, to his papers on database architecture in the 80s, to his papers on Scrum and scaling Scrum over the last three decades.  Much of Scrum@Scale’s structure was influenced by experience and lessons from biological systems, dynamic systems, and object oriented architectures, so we wanted to make all of Jeff’s research in those domains visible to the community.  More recently publications may be missing from this list, it is a work in progress.
