The rules and practices from Scrum--a simple process from 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
