Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Scrum is now the #1 agile software development framework – and its success is based in large part on the perceived intuitiveness and simplicity of its concepts. However, when new Scrum practitioners attempt to translate Scrum’s theory and high-level approaches into specific techniques for actual projects, doing so is often more difficult than they expected. Scrum Shortcuts without Cutting Corners will help you translate the Scrum framework into reality, and meet the Scrum challenges “formal” training didn’t warn you about.

 

Long-time Scrum manager Ilan Goldstein has brought together approximately 50 succinct, actionable, and proven “cookbook recipes” for optimizing process, action, and outcome, and taking your Scrum skills and expertise to the next level. In roughly 1,000 words (sometimes less) each “recipe” walks you through applying a single Scrum shortcut for achieving a tangible output. These easy-to-digest, 100% actionable shortcuts cover:

  • Project warm-ups and kick-offs
  • Roles and role models
  • Sustainable Scrum environments
  • Product(ive) Backlogs
  • Effective estimating, planning, and proving
  • Quality
  • Retros, reviews, and more

Synopsis:

Practical, Step-by-Step Scrum Techniques for Improving Processes, Actions, and Outcomes

 

The widespread adoption and success of Scrum can be attributed in large part to its perceived intuitiveness and simplicity. But when new Scrum practitioners attempt to apply Scrum theory and high-level approaches in actual projects, they often find it surprisingly difficult. In Scrum Shortcuts without Cutting Corners, Scrum expert Ilan Goldstein helps you translate the Scrum framework into reality to meet the Scrum challenges your formal training never warned you about.

 

Drawing on his extensive agile experience in a wide range of projects and environments, Goldstein presents thirty proven, flexible shortcuts for optimizing Scrum processes, actions, and outcomes. Each shortcut walks you through applying a Scrum approach to achieve a tangible output. These easy-to-digest, actionable patterns address a broad range of topics including getting started, quality and metrics, team members and roles, managing stakeholders, estimation, continuous improvement and much more.

 

Whatever your role, Scrum Shortcuts without Cutting Corners will help you take your Scrum skills to the next level and achieve better results in any project you participate in.

 

Synopsis:

Scrum is rapidly gaining momentum as the most popular agile framework primarily because its concepts are simple, and they just make sense! However, this perceived simplicity often gives rise to the false belief that Scrum is a silver bullet and trivial to implement. When 'rubber hits the road', Scrum teams often find that translating the framework into effective, practical approaches is anything but easy...

 

Full of easily digestible chapters, 'Scrum Shortcuts Without Cutting Corners' presents a wide range of tactics, tools and tips that may be employed by Scrum teams to help them overcome common hurdles and to help them reach the next level of effectiveness and maturity.
