About the Book
When companies start implementing agile software development, they often make some common mistakes. Even companies that have been "doing agile" for years sometimes still experience those anti-patterns.
Whether you are a manager of one of these companies, a Scrum Master, a Product Owner or a development team member: You should know about those anti-patterns and their root causes.
Even if you cannot solve all the problems of your company - If you know the names of the anti-patterns, you can more easily talk about them with others. And if you know root causes and possible solutions, you will have more to contribute in your next retrospective.
