Scrum is by far the most popular of the Agile frameworks for developing complex products. This course provides a working knowledge of the Scrum framework — the underlying principles, practices, techniques and skills necessary for you to succeed as a Scrum Master. If you are already on a Scrum team you will learn how to become a change agent to help your team achieve a higher level of success.

During writing this book, my main focus remained on making this learning process easy and fun. I like teaching with a straight-to-the-point/no-fluff approach. You will go through the following 7 sections:

  1. What is Scrum?
  2. What are the 3 Scrum Roles?
  3. What is the Process?
  4. What are the 4 Scrum Ceremonies?
  5. What are the 3 Artifacts of Scrum?
  6. What are the 5 Values of Scrum?
  7. What are the Top Scrum Terms?

By the end of this book you will be able to:

Describe the Scrum framework to others:

roles and responsibilities
use of each artifact
purpose of each meeting/ceremony

Explain the difference between the Scrum framework and other processes and systems

contrast with Waterfall
contrast ScrumMaster role with traditional roles
contrast the Scrum product backlog with traditional requirements
