Summary

A project begins as an idea. For the idea to be implemented into a real project, a sequence of steps must be followed. These steps form the project development methodology. A proper way of planning for these steps is needed. Each project development methodology requires resources. Such resources should be planned for so the project can use them in the right manner. 

Any project development process also requires labor from a number of individuals. In all projects, there are different participants who play different roles toward ensuring that the project goal is achieved. Such labor should be coordinated in the right way so as to ensure that everything runs smoothly. 

This guide is aimed at demystifying the nitty-gritty aspects of Scrum. Success will be greatly assured if everyone involved in a Scrum project is trained and educated in the basic Scrum philosophy, with more specific training provided to key players, including Scrum masters, product owners, and developers. 

Scrum is a straightforward, easy-to-use collaborative framework in which teams work together to effectively, optimally, and creatively deliver desired outcomes and products. Scrum is an amazing system that allows you to break down large and complex problems into small, achievable tasks that can be delegated to individual team members. 

As a beginner, you notice that experienced techies use the terms Scrum and Agile interchangeably. However, the two are different, and understanding the difference is perhaps the best way to begin understanding Scrum. 

Agile is a collection of practices and methods set up in the Agile Manifesto that includes elements such as cross-functionality of teams, self-organization, collaboration, and more. Scrum, on the other hand, is the actual framework that employed for the implementation of the Agile-based development. 

Think of it as a diet and a recipe. Suppose you are following a vegetarian diet that has a set of principles and methods to follow to achieve a particular health-related goal. Now, the recipe of chickpea taco is a framework you use to implement the vegetarian diet. Agile is like the diet, and Scrum is like the recipe.

In this audiobook, you will be able to learn about:
 

  • The Agile technique and its manifesto
  • An introduction to Scrum
  • The rules and roles
  • The processes and sprint cycles
  • Application of user stories and
  • Mistakes to avoid among other topics

well organised


Scrum focuses on a self-organizing, multi-functional team that can solve the necessary tasks with minimal coordination. This is especially attractive for small companies and startups, as it eliminates the need for hiring or training specialized personnel managers. This is the perfect guide on SCRUM subject.

Impressively interesting.

Perusing this book will help invigorate you to utilize Scrum to enable your group to succeed. This isn't the main book on Scum you need. In any case, in the event that you need inspiration to investigate increasingly about Scrum, or on the off chance that you have been rehearsing Scrum for some time and are searching for reestablished motivation, give this book a listen.

The book is loaded with alot of info's

The book is loaded with war stories (both truly and allegorically), and Sutherland is obviously glad for how he, his family, and associations he has worked with, have connected scrum.
