Summary

In the world of project management, it is easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of activities, tasks, and deadlines which need to be met. Often, it can tough to wrap your head around the various requirements and demands from both customers and project leaders.

In addition, careful planning is essential in order to ensure successful outcomes without disregarding quality. Then, there are the various project stakeholders which all have a certain degree of influence on a project.

If you think that sounds like a lot, you’re right. That is why being a project manager is one of the hardest jobs anyone can do. Also, you might find yourself consistently looking for the best ways to improve processes and streamline your daily tasks. This is why it is of the utmost importance for you to get the edge you need in the project management game.

So, look no further. In this audiobook, Scrum: A Step-by-Step Guide to Managing Product Development, you will find everything you need in order to get started using Scrum, not just as a part of your project management endeavors, but also as a part of your daily business tasks.

In this book, we will cover the following topics:

  • The definition of Scrum
  • The underlying philosophy of Scrum
  • Getting started with your first sprint
  • The sprint planning meeting
  • The sprint retrospect meeting 
  • The sprint review meeting
  • The various artifacts of Scrum 
  • The role of the Scrum Master
  • Transitioning from a traditional project management methodology to Scrum 
  • Best practices for Scrum
  • A great, practical example on the use of Scrum and many other insights you want to be sure not to miss.

Whether you’re a newbie to the world of project management or you’re a seasoned vet, you will find a plethora of useful advice that you won’t easily find anywhere else. You won’t have to go looking through multiple sources to find the relevant information you need. It’s all right here.

Don’t delay. The longer you wait, the longer you will have to navigate the waters of project management without the compass that is Scrum. It is hard enough to get things done even when you have a clear idea of what you are doing. So, why not make things easier by using Scrum?

You can avoid fear of change by embracing it. You can avoid delays by delivering early and often. And, most importantly, you can ensure customer satisfaction by involving your customers and stakeholders every step of the way.

So, get started with Scrum today. Once you go Scrum, you won’t be able to go back!

great resources

Usually when we start our adventure with Scrum, we focus on what is the most visible and seemingly the easiest to change or introduce: meetings, artifacts, new roles. Very quickly we loose the essence of agility, understanding why we do it.

Pretty good stuff

Scrum fundamental procedures can be easily applied across any number of industries fields and areas in which change is constant and volatility tends to be the norm. I can focus now on how Scrum can be used to manage projects in an efficient manner in such way that sustainable success and development are the main driving forces behind the outputs achieved as a result of teamwork and collaboration.

information and practice

There are methods that allow you to avoid the book of Scrum in the company, recommendations, and certificates for the future agile coach, analysis of Scrum metrics and other guidance on the application of this type of management.
