A collection of tips, tricks, and war stories to help the professional ScrumMaster break the chains of traditional organization and management
Checklists, questions, and exercises to get you thinking (and acting) like a professional ScrumMaster
Presented in a relaxed, jargon-free, personable style
Full of ideas, tips, and anecdotes based on real-world experiences
A natural and difficult tension exists between a project team (supply) and its customer (demand); a professional ScrumMaster relaxes this tension
using the Scrum framework so that the team arrives at the best possible outcome.
"The Professional ScrumMaster's Handbook" is a practical, no-nonsense guide to helping you become an inspiring and effective ScrumMaster
known for getting results.
This book goes into great detail about why it seems like you're fighting traditional management culture every step of the way. You will explore the
three roles of Scrum and how, working in harmony, they can deliver a product in the leanest way possible. You'll understand that even though there is
no room for a project manager in Scrum, there are certain "management" aspects you should be familiar with to help you along the way. Getting a
team to manage itself and take responsibility is no easy feat; this book will show you how to earn trust by displaying it and inspiring courage in a
team every day.
"The Professional ScrumMaster's Handbook" will challenge you to dig deep within yourself to improve your mindset, practices, and values in order
to build and support the very best agile teams.
