If you have no Agile background, then this book covers some of the basics. If you are a actually after information on Agile in large Distributed and complex integrated environments (as claimed by the authors) then you will be very much disappointed. However, you will learn that you need to be aware that other countries are in fact in different time zones - this seems to be a key issue for IBM (the author) as the time zone issue is repeated ad nauseam throughout this book. In fact many of the key points (which are mostly around telephone conferencing issues to India) are repeated over and over.

Format: Paperback
There are a lot of books about agile software development. There are a lot of books about scrum. Most of them are pretty general. Of course, they have examples and case studies. What I like about this book is that it is a real reflection of how things are done at IBM. Whether you like IBM or not, you have a chance to peek inside the big blue box and see how they make things tick. I really, really appreciate that chance, so I applaud the work of the authors, who have not only collaborated to write the book but also invited their colleagues at IBM to contribute. I was also impressed by their decision to donate all royalties to charity. Well done!

This a really basic book about Scrum and things you have to keep in mind when you handle several teams. Tips are obvious about the team location, time zones, and culture, but it really does not put any example or situation that support additional knowledge.

In less than 200-pages, the authors present experienced-based guidance for Distributed Scrum. They do a great job: Their points are clear, practical and proven. There's a wealth of re-usable information that's easily accessible.

This is a valuable tool for those new to Scrum as well as for those with several years of Scrum, distributed or not. The points made and the examples shared serve as excellent reminders for the experienced and as key insights and tips for those new to Scrum.

If you're a Scrum Master, you need to read this book whether you're using Distributed Scrum or not.
