About the Book

This workbook contains a set of tools and techniques to help Scrum Masters, Facilitators, Agile Coaches and Agile Practitioners when Storming teams. It has been created mainly to share the artifacts and techniques that I’ve developed from what I’ve learned, the challenges that I’ve faced and how I’ve got through it when helping teams navigathe through the Storming phase of their journey; I hope you get inspired to create your own version of these tools and I wish the techniques that I’m sharing here would bring new perspectives to your journey.

Wishing you all the best
