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
  • Scrum user stories

    "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.

    "5 out of 5"

    This audio book is extremely dense for the amount of time it takes, and I had to take breaks. There's a lot of jargon and specific information. I feel like it is important to take breaks to review PDF document and let the information sink in. Not a lot of people that Scrum is a methodology for software development. If it's something you are looking for, then this would be a great starting point. It's a very cut and dry audiobook, very textbook feel, but very well structured and has all the core information.

    "Easy to follow"

    Great, short and to the point. I rarely give five stars, but it’s the best book, you'll spend on a audio (I did Audible, but I’ll also buy the book to get the references easily ).

    "practical advice"

    Excellent, in this book, you will take the bull by the horns and hit the ground running. This information will take you from an average man on the street to James Bond flying in a high-speed chase in a 1935 Bugatti from behind a building in downtown Manhattan in a flash! Your programming genius will shine at every corner of knowledge obtained from this book.

    "A new way to complete project tasks,"

    The book is well laid out, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking to complete new software projects. I thought the "Sprint Review" section was particularly helpful as it acted much like a checklist. In my view, the ideas laid out in this book, if applied correctly would encourage knowledge sharing and help upskill all members of your team.

    "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 Suppliment if You're Taking a Class "

    The content itself is really relevant to the course I'm taking this semester about software development management. I'm the kind who learns easier though listening and this audiobook really helps.

    The way it goes into the practical applications of scrum

    The whole audiobook was pretty short. I can't pick out a single favorite part as i listened to it in one sitting, absorbing the information. It did make me understand more on how relevant it is to making software development more efficient.

    "Good refresher if you already know what Scrum is "

    The book as a whole isn't bad, it's well written and most parts are interesting, I just think Scrum is too complicated a process to be introduced in such a short, non-technical work.

    The reader is competent, though has some long awkward pauses in the beginning, she hits her flow near the end. Also she doesn't inject much emotion into the work.

    "Nice package of information"

    The book explains the what, how, and the why user stories can deliver the first-class product. Focus is of value. Easy steps, criteria were given in breaking down projects into user or customer perspective. The book provides some concise tips for fine-tuning and the best practices in managing a product backlog.
    Read this book to deliver first-class products.

    "GOOD"

    I'm a developer and at work we're moving to agile. Whilst I know I will learn on the job this book is a great high level overview and goes into just enough detail to make it useful.

    "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!
