Agile IT management framework [fev 2020]

Following the European Union Directive for Copyright, more and more signals are coming out to place copyright management on the CEO agenda at the same level as data privacy management [1] :
  • content marketing has become a key leverage for branding
  • more and more jobs are creating and using copyright assets
  • overlooked copyright faults by a supplier may question his security and loyalty
  • copyright security is being looked as a clue of enterprise and professional ethic 
  • overlooked copyright faults by an employer may deter the best digital talents, who have been trained on copyright use [2a] and are eager to work within an ethic environment, to join and stay [2b]
  • in a few enterprises, organisation has already been impacted [3a][3b].

The following study case is a cell of the enterprise adventure game "Copyright value added - the Game Version 2" [4].
The study case complies to the format of an "Entreprise Adventure Game cell"[5].

A framework to bring agility 
to large companies IT departments

Study case questions:
  1. In 2014, the consultant Gartner issued a model which recognizes the gap between large companies IT management and  digital startups management  ; what is its name ? 
  2. What is the word used to qualify a large company that has the capability to swiftly react to market changes ?
  3. What sport is evoked with the word "scrum", which is the name of a generic method which values individual software developpers interactions over software development management processes ?
  4. According to the genuine Scrum method guide, is the Scrum method applicable to large teams of software developpers ?
  5. We are in 2015. Name two legacy IT management frameworks, one edited in USA, the other edited in UK.
  6. Formulate a tagline to vision the challenge facing the CIOs of large companies ?
  7. Now you start designing a framework that should meet large companies CIOs expectations : 
  • identify the conceptual elements to retain from the Scrum method to integrate into your framework, 
  • identify the conceptual elements to retain from legacy software development frameworks to integrate into your framework
  • define a go-to-market strategy for the framework
  • choose a copyright regime (public domain, copyright, Creative Commons,...) for the framework.
