Scrum is a project management approach based on Agile principles that allows organisations and individuals to deliver the highest possible value in the shorted possible time. This framework has often been met with adversity as it is a departure to traditional methods, but has stood the test of time and has demonstrated through countless organisation that they are able to deliver more with less.
60 Minute: Scrum uses a number of cutting edge techniques to ensure that you are to both immediately apply the Scrum framework, and to recall the methodology for years to come.

I've participated in ScrumBut projects and am starting to participate in a new team as the product owner. I'm happy I downloaded and listened to this short audio book as a refresher to the full scope of scrum and a reminder that some of the "extra" project management items my organization requires are not part of traditional agile scrum. I hope this will enable me to be more effective and help the new scrum master streamline our teams ability to rapidly deliver value,
On a side note, the book lists several Scrum tools available on the market, but doesn't mention Jira or Rally which from my understanding have the largest market share.
Stuart has done an excellent job of delivering The entire theory of Scrum without excess words or fluffy content. Aaron is very easy to listen to. This is a must listen audiobook for anyone beginning the path of agile development and scrum.
This book provides a quick and cheap introduction to scrum. You get the basics explained, and can easily judge if this is a topic you want to learn more about. As an introduction, it fulfilled my expectations
This felt like it was the most boring 4 hours I have experienced in many many years - and it was only 52 minutes long!!! Lol
For that reason, I wanted to rate this book with only 1 star. However, I realize that this may just be an especially uninteresting topic for me. For someone who would like a "quick" guide on how to run a scrum project, this book is probably quite helpful. It did seem to have loads of instruction.
"Not for me"
I didn't enjoy listening to this book - for a start, far too much time is spent on the pre-supposition that the listener has no useful way of remembering things so tries to teach you their method. And as for the content...
I think he did a reasonable job, but stressing the memorisation techniques rather than the actual material could have been avoided.
I wanted to learn about Agile/Scrum, don't felt I learnt very much at all. Wanted to know how it differs from waterfall, how the project is organised, some examples of how to operate one - you know, a 60 minute briefing :)
