About the Book
Every week I get asked dozens of questions about Scrum from new Product Owners and Scrum Masters on every continent (except Antarctica). Most questions cannot be answered without going back to First Principles. This means you need to understand physics, biology, evolution, and psychology to do Scrum well.
I was the wingman of the sole surviving Ace from World War II in Vietnam. He was a brilliant scientist and engineer, and he taught me a lot about First Principles thinking. I was also lucky enough to engage with similar trailblazers in physics, chemistry, medicine, biology, and AI. They were all part of the search for hyperproductive Scrum, and they make for an exciting story.
In this book, I will share my insights on Scrum and First Principles thinking. I will also tell the stories of the trailblazers who helped me to develop my understanding of these concepts. I believe that this book can help you to become a more effective Agile Manager, Scrum Master or Product Owner.
