Book Description

The rules and practices for Scrum—a simple process for managing complex projects—are few, straightforward, and easy to learn. But Scrum’s simplicity itself—its lack of prescription—can be disarming, and new practitioners often find themselves reverting to old project management habits and tools and yielding lesser results. In this illuminating series of case studies, Scrum co-creator and evangelist Ken Schwaber identifies the real-world lessons—the successes and failures—culled from his years of experience coaching companies in agile project management. Through them, you’ll understand how to use Scrum to solve complex problems and drive better results—delivering more valuable software faster.

Gain the foundation in Scrum theory—and practice—you need to:

  • Rein in even the most complex, unwieldy projects
  • Effectively manage unknown or changing product requirements
  • Simplify the chain of command with self-managing development teams
  • Receive clearer specifications—and feedback—from customers
  • Greatly reduce project planning time and required tools
  • Build—and release—products in 30-day cycles so clients get deliverables earlier
  • Avoid missteps by regularly inspecting, reporting on, and fine-tuning projects
  • Support multiple teams working on a large-scale project from many geographic locations
  • Maximize return on investment!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting March 4 2012
By Daniel
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is full of stories that you can learn from the mistake of the Author at applying Scrum in a software environment. I loved the facts and advises I've been able to extract from the book. It is a bit difficult to "compile" all the facts by just reading the stories. That's why I give the book only 4 stars. But it is a very good way to learn the principles of Scrum.

I enjoyed this book - it was easy to get into and its generous use of real life examples (practically the whole book) helped me address many "what-ifs" and potential hiccups that can occur when implementing Scrum. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Agile PM through case studies June 6 2004
By Will B
Ken Schwaber, the co-founder of Scrum, presents a text of case studies based on his experience helping teams implement Scrum.
Each case is a mini-retrospective focusing on topics such as planning a scrum project, project reporting, team formation, and team member responsibilites. Ken presents the situation, the application of a scrum practice, the lessons learned, and a conclusion. The chapters can be browsed and read out of order.
For those not familiar with Scrum, there is a useful appendix which covers the rules and practices of Scrum.
For those who learn through case studies, I highly recommend this book.
