will recommend it for reading. Has lots of examples of implementation and explains scrum from every side and for every player. ( )

Nice examples of Scrum applied to industry.

Cases of positive and negative results also show what *NOT* to do in your projects.

I would recommend this to everyone participating in a software development project, regardless of its role. ( )

A great introduction to the theory of Scrum illustrated in many use cases with companies with very generic names. The "Lessons Learned" sections of each chapter are great, but the multi-page case study that leads up to them is often a dull look into a specific company. Overall a very good read, and it's definitely gotten me excited about Scrum again as I feel I understand it much better now. ( )

Excellent examples. This book finally left me wanting to know more about Scrum techniques instead of wondering when the author was bringing out the Snake Oil for sale.
After reading this book I want to take a course in Scrum, hopefully where I can ask how to overcome the obstacles that existed in my previous jobs.
This book also made me realize how important getting the right stories is, and that I may need to become a Scrum Master to make sure I get stories that can be done in a month. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 073561993X, Paperback)

The rules and practices for Scrum—a simple process for managing complex projects—are few, straightforward, and easy to learn. But Scrum’s simplicity itself—its lack of prescription—can be disarming, and new practitioners often find themselves reverting to old project management habits and tools and yielding lesser results. In this illuminating series of case studies, Scrum co-creator and evangelist Ken Schwaber identifies the real-world lessons—the successes and failures—culled from his years of experience coaching companies in agile project management. Through them, you’ll understand how to use Scrum to solve complex problems and drive better results—delivering more valuable software faster.

Gain the foundation in Scrum theory—and practice—you need to:

Rein in even the most complex, unwieldy projects Effectively manage unknown or changing product requirements Simplify the chain of command with self-managing development teams Receive clearer specifications—and feedback—from customers Greatly reduce project planning time and required tools Build—and release—products in 30-day cycles so clients get deliverables earlier Avoid missteps by regularly inspecting, reporting on, and fine-tuning projects Support multiple teams working on a large-scale project from many geographic locations Maximize return on investment!
