For those who are unfamiliar with the term ‘Agile Scrum’, the following is offered: ‘Scrum is an Agile framework and, as such, is consistent with the values of the Agile Manifesto. Individuals and interactions over processes and tools Scrum is a team-based approach to delivering value to the business. Team members work together to achieve a shared business goal. The Scrum framework promotes effective interaction between team members so the team delivers value to the business. Once the team gets a business goal, it figures out how to do the work, does the work, identifies what's getting in its way, takes responsibility to resolve all the difficulties within its scope, and works with other parts of the organization to resolve concerns outside their control.’ Or better defined by Scott, ‘Scrum encompasses a powerful set of principles and practices that help teams deliver products in short cycles, which enables speedy feedback, rapid adaptation to change, and continuous improvement.’
The manner in which Scott presents this material is exemplary: even those who have negligible experience in the new field of online marketing can easily follow his well-designed graphs and explanatory images. He explains the Agile Scrum Cycle by starting with Vision and moving on through product roadmap and release plan, team formation, product release backlog, sprint planning, sprint execution sprint review, sprint retrospective and product release.
Even if Agile Scrum is new to the reader, this book makes it seem easy to learn – and that is Scott M. Graffius’ greatest gift! Grady Harp, May 16
