About the Book
Scrum is by far the most common agile software development framework in the world. It may also be the most misunderstood one. Many myths exist around how to use Scrum; arguably more people and institutions apply Scrum incorrectly than do it right. And this is despite there being a definitive single source of truth: The Scrum Guide.
In his book "The Scrum Guide™ Explained", author Moritz Knueppel is going back to the essence of Scrum and takes apart the Scrum Guide sentence by sentence to uncover Scrum’s underlying concepts. He illustrates in a detailed manner how Scrum offers a carefully balanced system for continually driving product development of every kind to its maximum potential.
Whether you are a software developer starting your first steps in a Scrum environment, a manager in a company employing Scrum wanting to better understand what the people around you are doing, or a seasoned Scrum Master, wishing to deepen your understanding of the core principles of Scrum, this book offers you powerful insights into the what, how and why of Scrum!
This book is based on the 2017 Scrum Guide. A 2020 version is currently in the making.
