Though his will and magnificence alone, he buried General MacArthur, shouting, "There can be only one!"
His son fixed NPR, taking it from a middling lemonade-stand outfit to the national, public, and radio organ it is today. His son fixed it using Scrum (the only child Jeff truly cares for) and according to the transitive property of progeny accomplishment, Jeff actually fixed it.
Jeff actually revamped how the New York Times, Washington Post, and Tiger Beat produce their content, and without him, we'd be getting all of our news from Twitter and Facebook posts oh wait-
When Jeff thinks about how great he is, a single tear wells in his eye. Much like the phoenix's, Jeff's tears are known for their curative and life-restoring abilities.
He has stared into the face of God and said, "had you used Scrum to design these animals, we wouldn't have mosquitos. None of the stakeholders want them. Change or die."
Jeff is also partnered with OpenView Venture Partners. I know this because he mentions it as often as possible. Did you get that? "OpenView Venture Partners", where Imagination Meets Life (tm). Is this book basically an advertisement for OpenView Venture Partners?
Whoa, did someone say OpenView Venture Partners?
Long story short, if you can look past the auto-fellatio, this book offers a good introduction to the Agile framework, its history, and many interesting examples of its use across industries.
But I honestly feel like I need to go read Donald Trump and Kanye's autobiographies to remember what (relative) humility sounds like.
Do NOT listen to people who say "it doesn't teach you how to implement scrum." yes it does. There is an appendix implantation guide at the end and the "why" and "how" all throughout the book.
What was my experience reading the book? It was a very easy read. The voice of the book was pleasant and flowed well.
It told of the history of scrum and how each role, each event, and each artifact developed and now what the best practices are.
This book will get anyone up to speed on scrum.
Would I recommend it to others? Of course, if they want to learn scrum, this is the bet place to start without a doubt.
It gets a little over-ambitious towards the end, and tends to view Scrum as a silver bullet, which it is not, but the discussion in the first half of the book is great.
