A fast and easy guide to Agile/Scrum principles for any organization
The philosophy of Agile is to collaborate as much as possible with your teams and clients to build quality products that ship early and often, while learning and re-learning as you go.

In this straightforward and practical handbook, you'll learn:
- The dynamics of a successful Agile environment
- The very basics of Scrum and how to employ them quickly
- Practical questions to ask the Team Leader as well as the Team
- How to build an environment of communication and collaboration for the entire organization
