Book Description

Scrum is a simple framework that allows us to complete projects, continuously improve and get an early return on investment.

AUTHOR NOTE "I write this text as a certified scrum master with experience in international blue chip companies dating back to 1999. That experience includes leading projects for the BBC, General Electric, Oracle, BSkyB, HiT Entertainment (responsible for Angelina Ballerina, Bob the builder and other titles that you love watching with your kids or siblings but won’t admit to) and Razorfish. These roles have all involved leadership on a wealth of mobile, internet TV and web software projects. I have played the role of scrum master and in the earlier years, of team lead and technical lead. I have had the privilege of running projects and rolling out working practices in market leading organisations from start to finish."

1.0 out of 5 stars A few basic Scrum ideas, but uninformed opinions November 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I find this book to sometimes be O.K. in terms of the content that could be scraped from the Scrum Guide or the Scrum Almanac, but it reads like something put together in a few weeks by someone with a traditional Project Management / waterfall background, and who is a rather inexperienced and usually uninformed practitioner of Scrum. It has a vague Scrum shape to it, but the filler is far too much from outside of Scrum, and is usually at odds with core Scrum principles.

For example, it says that the Product Owner role is usually played by a Product Manager and that the ScrumMaster is played by a Project Manager. All descriptions of requirements discussions reflect that orientation: all requirements are written, and the place of dialog with the Product Owner is minimized.

While being faithful to some of the Scrum definitions, it fails on the deeper foundations. Rather than focusing on team Kaizen, it allocates all impediment removal to the ScrumMaster. It waffles about the Definition of Done and, in the end, gets it wrong. It emphasizes that the team comprise "domain experts" and fails to drive at team learning. It says little or nothing about scaling and cross-team coordination, most likely because they are outside the scope of the author's experience.

And in some places it is unfaithful to any conscionable definition of Scrum: It says that the team does not commit to the Sprint Goal (it does); in release planning it makes no mention of velocity variance (this is a standard Project Manager failure); it allows "small" amounts of Product Owner interference during the Sprint (none is allowed).

In the final analysis, you can download this book from the web at no cost, and I can attest that, from that source, it's worth every penny.

I have been reading a lot recently about this process. I am not seeing the word "Test" mentioned very much at all. Is Test part of the conversation or does Test add itself after the Scrum says it has a deliverable? if so then considering some sort of formula test could be up to three weeks in duration. It is understood that minimizing of most everything in writing is one of the goals of this process which is not necessarily a bad result, but delivering a product with out adequate testing cannot be accepted. It all makes perfect sense to me otherwise.

4.0 out of 5 stars SCRUM, Great kickoff to start a project September 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a good review on how to start a project using SCRUM. A good review if you already know SCRUM. A great over view if you want to learn some basics.

By Fanchon
Format:Kindle Edition
I have completed reading Parts 1 and 2. This helps me with standing up new teams to clearly define not only the process - but ceremonies as well. Looking forward to the upcoming parts!
Just read Part 3 - Loving it - so many real world tidbits that I know will help my teams moving forward.
