Publisher's Summary

The basics of being a ScrumMaster are fairly straightforward: At face value, all a ScrumMaster needs to do is facilitate the Scrum process and remove impediments. But being a great ScrumMaster, one who truly embodies the principles of servant-leadership and helps move a team to the high performance levels possible with Scrum, is much harder and much more elusive.

In this audiobook, Geoff shares a collection of stories and practical guidance, drawn from over 10 years of coaching numerous Scrum teams that will guide you on your path to greatness.

In this audiobook, you will learn: 

  • The skills and characteristics of great ScrumMasters
  • How to generate, maintain, and increase engagement from the team
  • How to increase the effectiveness of the Scrum meetings, such as retrospectives and daily scrums
  • How to foster a more creative and collaborative team
  • How to increase the performance of the team
  • How to know when you are a successful ScrumMaster

Scrum Mastery is for practicing ScrumMasters who want to develop themselves into a great servant-leader capable of taking their teams beyond simple process compliance.

Mike Cohn, in his foreword for the book, said:

"Most books rehash well-trod territory and I don’t finish them any wiser. I am positive I will be referring back to this book for many years."

Good Ideas

This book had a lot of good ideas but they ran way too long with each idea. The author could have made this book about 30% shorter and still gotten the same point across. I would say if you are looking to learn about running a scrum team than this maybe a good book to scan through.

If only this book was available when I started...

Geoff is so inspirational, providing clear cases that I use as often as possible to help interpret the agile manifesto and principles into daily scrum. This book provides confident answers to typical resistance to change, especially upwards. If you have trouble trying to put into words what you already inherently believe about Scrum and agile, get this book. My hope is renewed in proving Scrum's value, and if the data proves it, helping transform the rest of the company.

The book informs by using practical examples.

The real world examples bring to life an otherwise theoretical practice. I have come across many of the scenarios referred to in the book.

excellent

Having already attended a course run by Geoff, he delivers the narration with the same energy and passion shown on his courses.

This is a must for anyone wishing to be a great ScrumMaster.
