What is Scrum?

The Scrum approach to software development is an Agile framework for teams to collaboratively develop and produce high-quality software in small pieces.

Why an eBook?

I wanted to create a quick-start guide for managers, developers, and software development practitioners who need better ways to produce better software.

Who should read this?

Any ScrumMaster or Project Leader who wants to help their teams reach the next level in productivity, efficiency, and transparency for the business.

Can I purchase a paperback version?

Yes you can!

The Scrum Pocket Guide: The Beginning

 You should write a book.

My boss told this to me years ago. At the time I was sending “Agile Updates” to the team every week, and I still do this in my consulting and coaching work. These Agile Updates were weekly emails about best practices in Agile software development taken from experience or applying better methods to what we were already doing as a team.

My hope is that this book can help bring clarity and improvement to implementing Scrum through organizational change and by bringing personal involvement and ownership into the equation. Any organization willing to embrace best practices in Scrum development from this book will also learn about the importance of culture within a team. It is this culture of empowerment that enables both teams and leaders of teams to reach their fullest potential.

It is a succinct, well thought out and easy to read guide for anyone using Scrum within their organization. After reading it, I liken it to Roman Pichlers Agile Product Management with Scrum book. Yes, it is that good.
