The Scrum method as an instrument of Lean Management and their implementation

My thesis about the implementation of Scrum for an agile42 customer as an empiric example of reducing costs in times of uncertainty

Last month, my thesis "The Scrum method as an instrument of Lean Management and their implementation" was published and is now available all over the world… here is a small summary:

"It ́s necessary to optimize working processes because of the economical benefits and it increases the lastingness of resources and working overhead. Methods especially in the software development were created to help organizations increasing their output while reducing costs. This is out of the economical principle where the idea is from to produce the highest output with less input. The scrum method is an agile method out of the lean management and was created by Toyota. This method was taken over and adapted from the car industry to the software development. Today a lot of big companies work agile with scrum. The increasing trend of using scrum and other agile methods shows the demand of reducing costs in times of uncertainly financial markets. The implementation of scrum through agile42.com within a customer shows the empiric way how this works."
