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!

Very educative!

One of the most useful books I read, it explores the foundations and principles that make scrum work so successfully, and how it applies not only to the purpose it was created but to most fields.

Helpful!

I have re-read this book on Scrum, an Agile development framework, after my role as Scrum Master went up in my professional life. To my surprise, I still think this is the best introductory Scrum book out there.

Introducing Scrum

I've been looking into SCRUM for a while and considering taking a course. This book has sold it to me. Loads of real-life examples beyond just the traditional IT and software development that I'm used to.

Excellent book for new way of management!

Wetherell starts the book, explaining that it doesn't give the How, but the Why - which turns out more important. I've known the Scrum methodology for some time, but now it really makes sense.

very good explanation

This is definitely my new favourite book on management that will be there up until someone will make a management system that would be entirely based on telepathy so we didn't need Scrum boards.

Great Introduction to SCRUM!

Great introduction to SCRUM methodologies for beginners. It doesn't get too far in to the weeds, which I think is good for a beginner. It lays a nice foundation for those of us just starting out.

What to expect, It is more conceptual but the good thing is that it targets business aside from software development.
