Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first book to show programmers how to implement eXtreme Programming quickly and easily through the SCRUM process. SCRUM is the fastest, easiest to implement, and most widely accepted Agile process.
  • Immediately start producing software incrementally regardless of existing engineering practices or methodologies.
  • Simplify XP implementation through a SCRUM wrapper.
  • The software development industry is and will continue to be embroiled in controversy the SCRUM book provides theory, metaphor, examples, and nomenclature for this controversy.

eXtreme Programming is an ideal many software shops would love to reach, but with the constant pressures to produce software quickly, they cannot actually implement it. The Agile software process allows a company to implement eXtreme Programming quickly and immediately-and to begin producing software incrementally in as little as 30 days! Implementing eXtreme Programming is easier said than done. The process can be time consuming and actually slow down current software projects that are in process. This book shows readers how to use SCRUM, an Agile software development process, to quickly and seamlessly implement XP in their shop-while still producing actual software. Using SCRUM and the Agile process can virtually eliminate all downtime during an XP implementation.

Ken Schwaber is president of Advanced Development Methods (ADM), a company dedicated to improving the software development practice. He is an experienced software developer, product manager, and industry consultant. Schwaber initiated the process management product revolution of the early 1990's and also worked with Jeff Sutherland to formulate the initial versions of the Scrum development process.

Mike Beedle, an experienced software development practitioner, is the founder and CEO of e-Architects, Inc., a management and technical consulting company that helps its clients develop software in record time. Beedle has contributed to thousands of software projects for the last 20 years, and has used, recommended, and guided others to implement Scrum since 1995.

Book News Annotation:

A deceptively simple process called Scrum, a new approach to systems development projects, is described here. Application development managers will learn how to simplify the implementation of Agile processes with Scrum, how to simplify XP implementation through a Scrum wrapper, how to understand the theoretical underpinnings of Agile processes, and why Agile processes work and how to manage them. Material is of interest to the software development community at large. Schwaber is president of a software development consultancy.

Using SCRUM and the Agile process can virtually eliminate all downtime during an XP implementation.

Synopsis:

Arguably the most important book about managing technology and systems development efforts, this book describes building systems using the deceptively simple process, Scrum. Readers will come to understand a new approach to systems development projects that cuts through the complexity and ambiguity of complex, emergent requirements and unstable technology to iteratively and quickly produce quality software.

  • Learn how to simplify the implementation of Agile processes
  • Learn how to simplify XP implementation through a Scrum wrapper
