In this small book, Hiren Doshi sets out to make the Scrum framework more easy to learn, He calls his book "The Scrum Guide Companion" and that is what it is. For each section of the Scrum Guide you can get clarifications and advice for application from small book.
This is a short book, which I appreciate. But is also means that it is mostly not a novel. Except from some examples, a lot of the book is bullets with facts or observations for you to ponder. Its contents is strikingly accurate, bringing together information from many sources such as courses, books, discussions and assessments. I know of no other source that does this.
I read the book in just a few hours. If you are studing the Scrum framework, this may be worth a few hours of your time too!
After going through the topic of Myths,Mysteries and Misconceptions i corrected myself in some areas.
There are case studies and best practices which sheds some more light on the scrum in an informative way.
The topic of Scrum whether it is a methodology or framework is explained in a crystal clear.
Thanks Hiren Doshi and looking forward for more books on Scrum from you.
In nutshell, the book is really helpful for PSM certifications
- It does answer all questions mentioned in the back cover of the book are addressed perfectly, except for the question, "How does Scrum embrace the four values and twelve principles of the Agile Manifesto?” It does address it in parts.
- Index pages could have been added at the last
- Chapter name could have been the header on every page
Hiren has covered some of the most frequently asked questions e.g. What is Sprint 0, How is Architecture handled in Agile, how do we know that a Scrum team is self-organizing?
It takes a very practical approach towards implementing Scrum without compromising on its values and principles.
Perhaps the first book on Scrum that newbies should read after going through the official Scrum Guide.
A useful and handy reference for Scrum practitioners!
