About the Book

The book is a hands on learning experience that will cover a range of topics we feel Scrum Masters need to master. We know that being a Scrum Master is not an easy job, and we are passionate about helping people on this journey. Through being Scrum Masters ourselves for many years, and coaching many people on the journey, we have a collection of lessons and skills we believe it is vital for Scrum Masters to learn.

Our hope is that this book will be like having us as your personal coach on your journey, and fast track your learning by guiding you through these lessons each week. Just like each team is different, each Scrum Master’s journey is different, so what is most important about this book is that you try things out with your own team and in your environment. Some things we suggest might work great for you, others might be a complete disaster, that’s okay. That’s how you will learn.

This book is for anyone who is looking to improve as a Scrum Master or agile coach. Because the book is filled with exercises for you to do, it will make most sense if you have a team (or more than one) that you can try things out on. 

The book is written so that it’s applicable if you are a brand new Scrum Master or someone with 5 years experience looking to revitalise your team. We will cover a lot of the basics, but as experienced coaches we know that often going back to basics is exactly what experts need.
