Editorial Reviews

Review

Paul is a respected Scrum coach and practitioner, and one of the UK s first certified trainers. He is always pushing his own edge and exploring new and better ways of helping teams engage. In this volume he offers ideas and techniques from the world of improvisation ideas he has put into practice himself. The combination of improv theory and stories from his own experience make for a compelling read. --Tobias Mayer, Author of The People's Scrum

At last, a book that reveals how the ideas and practices of improvisation are applied in the leading techniques of software development. This is a timely and necessary work from Paul. Yes! --Paul Z. Jackson, Chief Executive, The Improvisation Academy

Developing teamwork is essential to the success of agile methods and we should leave no stone unturned when looking for ways to build and strengthen high-performing software development teams. This book is a breath of fresh air to inspire the agile community into a new, more creative space. Great stuff! --Geoff Watts, Author of Scrum Mastery: From Good To Great Servant-Leadership

Format: Paperback
For any Scrum master, Agile coach, Scrum trainer or for any interested individuals in Agile this is well worth the read.

The thing I like about the book the most, is it makes you step back and think about your team, your organization and yourself in your Agile environment. I always asked myself when reading this book was "If my team/organization was an improv show, what would it really look like?"

The book is an easy read, which is broken down to incremental build as you flow through the book.

Paul is an experienced agilist, who in the book relates to real life struggles he has had with Agile teams and we all have in our agile related roles

There are many different techniques you can take away and work with your teams. The book is something you wont read once, you will use it as a reference to tackle all the different issues we have.

Great book!
