The CIO of the Mamma Mia organization (a dry pasta manufacturer and distributor) has decreed that SCRUM will be used to manage all software development projects from now on. For an important meeting that the CIO has with the fellow C’s next week, the CIO has asked you, as Systems Development Manager, to prepare a comprehensive report describing SCRUM, with wording and content aimed at the top managers of the organization.
The paper should have at least 900 words and have the following section subtitles (plus proper introduction and conclusion paragraphs):
- Summary of the proposal
- Description of SCRUM
- SCRUM Roles
- The SCRUM Team
- SCRUM procedures
- Why SCRUM now?
Include a title page and reference page. Make sure your paper follows APA style according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.).
As support for your analysis, use at least two resources and/or outside, credible academic sources. (You may not use Wikipedia for any CSU-Global assignment.) For this assignment, a credible source is defined as:
- Scholarly or peer-reviewed journal articles
- Newspaper articles
- Trade or industry journal articles, publications, or websites, including those from trade organizations. Consider CIO Magazine, the Harvard Business Review, Fortune, and similar solid sources.
Please be sure NOT to use direct quotations from sources and, instead, use paraphrasing or summarizing when needed.
