From the Publisher

Core Concept Leading agile consultant and practitioner Mike Cohn presents detailed recommendations, powerful tips, and real-world case studies drawn from his unparalleled experience helping hundreds of software organizations make Scrum and agile work. Practical guide to estimating and planning agile projects. In this book, Agile Alliance cofounder Mike Cohn discusses the philosophy of agile estimating and planning and shows you exactly how to get the job done, with real-world examples and case studies. A best way to build software that meets users' needs is to begin with "user stories": simple, clear, brief descriptions of functionality that will be valuable to real users. Mike Cohn provides you with a front-to-back blueprint for writing these user stories and weaving them into your development lifecycle.
This book will help you Transition individuals to new roles; Structure teams; Scale up; Work with a distributed team; Implement effective metrics and continuous improvement. Answer the questions 'What should we build and by when?'; 'How big is this?'; 'When will this be done?'; and 'How much can I have by then?'. Save time and eliminate rework, make great user stories, and how to organize them, prioritize them, and use them for planning, management, and testing.
