A Scrum Introduction
A Scrum Introduction
A Short Introduction to Agile and Scrum. Longer than the Scrum Guide, but shorter than most Scrum books.
About the Book
This book is based on a lot of experience and learning:
* Scrum trainer since 2008 (CST). And agile coach.
* 18+ years working with Scrum and implementations of Scrum
* I co-trained with Jeff Sutherland over 8 courses; and took Ken Schwaber's course.
* Worked with lots of other experts in this field.
* Learned a lot from my clients and my students, and their situations
These ideas should help you use Scrum better. The book should give you a clearer and more actionable idea about what Scrum is. The book should make you and your Team more effective. And enable you to deliver a better product to your customers. And have more fun!
NB. When you buy, you get all later updates for free.
And you can give me feedback. I'm listening!
