They contain material that might help you use Scrum in rather unique circumstances that aren’t described in the case studies that constitute the body of this book.  Backdrop: The Science of Scrum Software development is a complex endeavor. Of course, this news isn’t very surprising because the universe is full of complexity. Most complexities we don’t know about, and others we are content to leave unexamined. Some—like the complex process by which pressure turns coal into diamonds—take care of themselves.

When I say that Scrum helps control a software development project, I don’t mean that it ensures that the project will go exactly as expected, yielding results identical to those that were predicted. Rather, I mean that Scrum controls the process of software development to guide work toward the most valuable outcome possible. Empirical Process Control Complex problems are those that behave unpredictably. Not only are these problems unpredictable, but even the ways in which they will prove unpredictable are impossible to predict.

I’ve provided some of the background for each story, described how Scrum was used in that situation, and presented some of the lessons that can be learned from the way Scrum was used. The case studies are organized into topical chapters, through which you should feel free to browse. The chapter topics are Chapter 1; Chapter 2; Chapter 3; Chapter 4; Chapter 5; Chapter 6; Chapter 7; Chapter 8; and Chapter 9. Sometimes I indicate that the background for a story has been provided in a previous chapter.
