Publisher's Summary

Scrum is a framework for developing and sustaining complex products. It is a framework within which people can address complex adaptive problems, while productively and creatively delivering products of the highest possible value. Scrum is lightweight, simple to understand, and not difficult to master.

Scrum is not a process or a technique for building products; rather, it is a framework within which you can employ various processes and techniques. Scrums makes clear the relative efficacy of your product management and development practices so that you can improve.

The Scrum framework consists of Scrum teams and their associated roles, events, artifacts, and rules. Each component within the framework serves a specific purpose and is essential to Scrum's success and usage. The rules of Scrum bind together the events, roles, and artifacts, governing the relationships and interaction between them.

The heart of Scrum is a Sprint, a time-box of one month or less during which "done", useable, and potentially releasable product is created. Sprints best have consistent duration throughout a development effort. A new Sprint starts immediately after the conclusion of the previous Sprint. Sprints contain and consist of the Sprint planning, daily Scrums, work development, the Sprint review, and Sprint retrospective.

The rules of Scrum are described throughout the body of this book with the specific tactics for using the Scrum framework:

  • What is Scrum?
  • Scrum as a software development methodology
  • Scrum Master
  • Transitioning to Scrum
  • How to implement Scrum

Wonderfully written a joy to listen to.

This quick guide is a must for anyone new or seasoned. It covers all aspects and give great samples of projects using scrum.

I think this was a pretty decent book, but I can't help but think that it could've been somewhat condensed. I do love the flow and the book's thoroughness.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest assessment of this book.

Good beginners guide

The way it was written was something that the general reader can understand. However, I just noticed a few spelling errors but it is quite bearable. Don’t take my word for it because I am just being me. The quality of the whole e-book is not compromised by it. Overall the entire reading was worthwhile and I have learned so much about Agile management. Worth downloading!

Great book

This is a great box set. Both books complement each other. First the agile project manager is covered then the book drills down to the SCRUM Master. The book has useful information. 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.

Wonderful Book!!!

This was a very good audio book. It was informative and gave me some new info.
I'm not a big fan of the narrator, but the info itself is great. Provided a good background on Lean and Project Mgt, and went quickly from there. I received this item at a discount in exchange for an honest review.
