Scrum is a well-known agile model due to its strong management practices. It can be mingled with many software development models such as extreme programming (XP), Agile Unified Process, and Feature Driven Development (FDD). Lean is a very popular known process in the automobile industry due to its effective practices such as Kanban bard and smooth workflow.

Scrum is useable and practical for small and medium projects but it does not render positive support for the large size projects. In order to adopt Scrum for large size projects, there is a need to integrate Lean and Scrum. It is required to inherit some properties of the Lean into Scrum, without compromising the speed, quality, efficiency, and standards, to accomplish large size projects successfully such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. It is anticipated that the proposed Lean Scrum integration will make it suitable to develop large size projects. The same is accomplished by purposing an integrated LScrum model in this research. The proposed model is validated using a survey to conclude the results. The results of the survey support the proposed integration of Lean and Scrum for the development of large size projects.
