Review

"If you are starting out, Dan and Doug can help you. If you are struggling along the way, they can help you even more. And if you are already great, Dan and Doug can help you be greater."
- Jeff Sutherland, co-developer of Scrum, original signatory of Agile Manifesto

"When you fnish this book, you'll have an understanding of how to put Scrum into practice in almost every situation you may encounter... Dan and Doug have written the best Scrum book I have seen. Read it, heed it, and prosper."
- Ron Jeffries, first XP coach, original signatory of Agile Manifesto

"Dan and Doug bring crystal clarity to why things are the way they are in Scrum - why certain practices work and others do not."
- Jeff McKenna, the world's first ScrumMaster

"Dan and Doug have given you a gift. They have written a book where you can get Scrum right... that is easy to read, understandable, and can help you see where you might go off course."
- Johanna Rothman, Management Guru and Author

"This book is a step beyond the basics... I know you will enjoy this book - it's like an extended fireside chat with Dan."
- Linda Rising, PhD, COO of the Hillside Group

About the Author

Dan Rawsthorne has developed software in an agile way since 1983. He has worked in many different domains, from e-commerce to military avionics. He has a PhD in Mathematics (number theory), is a retired Army Officer, and a Professional Bowler and Coach. Dan is very active in the Agile/Scrum community and speaks quite often at conferences and seminars. He is a transformation agent, coaching Organizations to become more successful through agility. His non-software background has helped him immeasurably in his coaching: his formal training in mathematics guides him to look for underlying problems rather than focus on surface symptoms; his military background helps him understand the importance of teamwork and empowerment; and his work with bowlers has helped him understand that coaching is a two-way street. 

Doug Shimp has worked in the technology field since 1992 and has played many key roles on software teams, including Coder, Tester, Analyst, Team Leader, Manager, Coach, and Consultant. Doug's passion is for team learning to improve product development, and he is a leader in the area of agile/Scrum transitions and applied practices. He believes that the core basis for applied agility is that 'You must see the result for it to be real; otherwise it is all just theory...' Much of his experience with teamwork and agility comes from outside the software field, including an earlier career as an owner/manager of a painting company - which enabled him to learn about small-team dynamics in a very hands-on way.
