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!
