The rules and practices for Scrumâ€”a simple process for managing complex projectsâ€”are few, straightforward, and easy to learn. But Scrumâ€™s simplicity itselfâ€”its lack of prescriptionâ€”can be disarming, and new practitioners often find themselves reverting to old project management habits and tools and yielding lesser results. In this illuminating series of case studies, Scrum co-creator and evangelist Ken Schwaber identifies the real-world lessonsâ€”the successes and failuresâ€”culled from his years of experience coaching companies in agile project management. Through them, youâ€™ll understand how to use Scrum to solve complex problems and drive better resultsâ€”delivering more valuable software faster.Gain the foundation in Scrum theoryâ€”and practiceâ€”you need to: Rein in even the most complex, unwieldy projects Effectively manage unknown or changing product requirements Simplify the chain of command with self-managing development teams Receive clearer specificationsâ€”and feedbackâ€”from customers Greatly reduce project planning time and required tools Buildâ€”and releaseâ€”products in 30-day cycles so clients get deliverables earlier Avoid missteps by regularly inspecting, reporting on, and fine-tuning projects Support multiple teams working on a large-scale project from many geographic locations Maximize return on investment!
