It's time to extend the benefits of Scrum - greater agility, higher-quality products, and lower costs - from individual teams to your entire enterprise. 

However, with Scrum's lack of prescribed rules, the friction of change can be challenging as people struggle to break from old project management habits. 

This book is for those who want to use Scrum throughout their enterprise for product development. Right now, you might have pockets within your enterprise that use Scrum, and they are more effective than elsewhere. You are at least partially convinced that using Scrum throughout the enterprise might be a way to make the whole enterprise more effective, but you could use some help in figuring out how to do so. 

In this book, agile-process revolution leader Ken Schwaber takes you through change management explaining how to successfully adopt Scrum across your entire organization.
