A Scrum Book


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Building a successful product usually involves teams of people, and many choose the Scrum approach to aid in creating products that deliver the highest possible value. Implementing Scrum gives teams a collection of powerful ideas they can assemble to fit their needs and meet their goals. The ninety-four patterns contained within are elaborated nuggets of insight into Scrum’s building blocks, how they work, and how to use them. They offer novices a roadmap for starting from scratch, yet they help intermediate practitioners fine-tune or fortify their Scrum implementations. Experienced practitioners can use the patterns and supporting explanations to get a better understanding of how the parts of Scrum complement each other to solve common problems in product development. The patterns are written in the well-known Alexandrian form, whose roots in architecture and design have enjoyed broad application in the software world. The form organizes each pattern so you can navigate directly to organizational design tradeoffs or jump to the solution or rationale that makes the solution work. The patterns flow together naturally through the context sections at their beginning and end. Learn everything you need to know to master and implement Scrum one step at a time—the agile way.

Scrum


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Scrum is adaptive, efficient, agile, and simple. So why are you struggling? Not all organizations that adopt the Scrum framework will have a smooth transition. Some may find themselves grappling with new concepts and new ways of doing things. The work process under Scrum is wildly different from the Waterfall method so even if Scrum is simple to understand, it can be difficult to master. The reasons vary as to why there is resistance to change, but the real reason is the lack of solid understanding of why a change has to be made. The tech industry moves at unprecedented speed in terms of releasing new products to the market. Because the traditional project management methods are slow to respond to the demand, firms are switching gears and integrating Scrum in their process. As a result, people are thrust into a new system that they do not have a clear grasp of. In this book, you’ll be able to understand the Scrum framework and how the concepts work in the real world. You’ll discover: What made traditional methods obsolete How Scrum became the new standard for managing projects How Scrum enables a leaderless system Why Scrum works even with a diverse group of people How Scrum brings together people with different skills and expertise How Scrum enables teams to deliver high-quality products How big companies use Scrum to achieve their goals The book is structured in a way that answers the Why, What, Who, and How of Scrum to give a holistic view of the framework. It explains elements of the Scrum process, including team roles, workflow, tools, and team dynamics. This will help both novice and experienced practitioners to integrate Scrum into their daily lives. With a better understanding of Scrum, it’s easy to embrace the framework because of the positive things it does to team dynamics—whether in tech companies or firms operating in different industries. Mastery of Scrum can only happen if you have a solid understanding of its concepts, ideas, principles, and real-world applications. This book is a great take-off point and something that you can take with you as you head on to your Scrum journey. Whether you’re a project manager trying to fit in the new leaderless system, a coder getting used to new responsibilities, or a software engineer grappling with newfound accountability, this book will guide you as you navigate the exciting world of Scrum.

Agile Project Management With Scrum


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Scrum is one of the agile methodologies designed to guide teams in the iterative and incremental delivery of a product. Often referred to as "an agile project management framework," its focus is on the use of an empirical process that allows teams to respond rapidly, efficiently, and effectively to change. Traditional project management methods fix requirements in an effort to control time and cost; Scrum on the other hand, fixes time and cost in an effort to control requirements. This is done using time boxes, collaborative ceremonies, a prioritized product backlog, and frequent feedback cycles. The involvement of the business throughout the project is critical as Scrum relies heavily on the collaboration between the team and the customer or customer representative to create the right product in a lean fashion. This paper provides an overview of Scrum and its use in project management. It discusses the original Scrum framework, as well as the application of Scrum.
