Make Scrum Great Again

What makes the Difference?

About the Book

I remember when Scrum was something new, all the Developers wanted to be part of a Scrum Team. The Scrum Master was like a Union guy protecting the team from the context. On the other side, the Management were strongly resisting the change.

Walking the year 2018, many things are different.

For one side, almost all Managers wants to implement some kind of Agile/Scrum workflow.

The demand for Scrum Masters, Certifications and Agile Coaches multiplied.

And for the Developer side, is very easy to hear critics about Agile and Scrum.

Now many Developers don't wants to work with Scrum.

What happened in the middle?

What have changed?

How can we Make Scrum Great Again?

That will be the starting point of this book. Together we will explore powerful questions like:

  • What is Agile?
  • Why Agile works? and How?
  • What makes Scrum to work Great?
  • Which are the invisible points that makes the difference?
  • How can Agile help me to achieve my goals?
  • Is Agile for eveybody?
  • Is Agile for me?

After working 8 years in Agile Teams, I want to share in this book my vision about how to answer these questions.

I hope you enjoy this book and you find it useful,

at your service,

Daniel Ceillan
