The authors describe's four-year journey from chaos to a relatively mature agile organization. From engineering teams tasked with more projects than developers, delivery dates set long before projects were scoped or staffed, and multitudinous business stakeholders deluging team members with new project requests, each more urgent than the previous, the team evolved into scrum sprints with predictable, steady paces and a comprehensive planning process wrapping the sprints.
