Mik Kersten – Project to Product

An addition to the more lyrical and tactically oriented DevOps foundation books from Gene Kim, this book presents a method to scale agile in large organizations.

Mik Kersten introduces the Flow Framework, a way of linking product development planning, the activities around product development and the integration of supporting tools.

The different types of “flows” (work that must be done do improve the product – my words) that Kersten identifies are Features, Defects, Risks and Technical Debts. Flows must attribute to some business result, whether improved product value, cost (reduction), better quality or customer happiness.
