Are you a software developer? Do you manage software developers? Are you using scrum? Are you thinking of using scrum? Then you must have this book! Scrum is the most popular agile software development process in use today, but implementing it has proven difficult for many people. Dan and Doug wrote this book in order to help people with their implementations of Scrum. Both Dan and Doug have trained and coached thousands of people, most of whom are already using Scrum. In spite of the fact that they have read about Scrum, have been trained or coached in Scrum, and are using Scrum, their most common complaint is that they need help to do it right. And, Dan and Doug have found, many (if not most) of them need some help. This book is for them and others like them. This book is not an introductory text. Dan and Doug assume that those who read this book know, or think they know, something about Scrum. This book takes a deep, exploratory, look into the Scrum framework, and offers advice about how to think about it, and how to use it. Some of this advice is philosophical, some is pragmatic, some is practical, and some of it is controversial. The controversies happen because Dan and Doug are brutally consistent and true to the essence of Scrum. This book is not the result of an academic exercise; every suggestion or conclusion in this book is grounded in real-life issues they have encountered, and suggestions that they have made for teams and people they have coached or trained. This book contains both pragmatic advice and the philosophical underpinnings justifying that advice. Scrum is a development framework that is very demanding of its adherents. Scrum is easy to understand, but doing it successfully (one might even say 'right') is very difficult. Scrum's 'out of the box' process is just good enough to allow Teams, Organizations, and Individuals to develop software successfully while their 'process personalities' are maturing and becoming more scrummish. Once their personalities have changed, then they can adapt Scrum for their own situations and realities. This book focuses on helping you become more scrummish and discusses some of the adaptations you will make as you mature.

Building upon his earlier book that detailed agile data warehousing programming techniques for the Scrum master, Ralph's latest work illustrates the agile interpretations of the remaining software engineering disciplines: Requirements management benefits from streamlined templates that not only define projects quickly, but ensure nothing essential is overlooked. Data engineering receives two new "hyper modeling" techniques, yielding data warehouses that can be easily adapted when requirements change without having to invest in ruinously expensive data-conversion programs. Quality assurance advances with not only a stereoscopic top-down and bottom-up planning method, but also the incorporation of the latest in automated test engines. Use this step-by-step guide to deepen your own application development skills through self-study, show your teammates the world's fastest and most reliable techniques for creating business intelligence systems, or ensure that the IT department working for you is building your next decision support system the right way. Learn how to quickly define scope and architecture before programming starts Includes techniques of process and data engineering that enable iterative and incremental delivery Demonstrates how to plan and execute quality assurance plans and includes a guide to continuous integration and automated regression testing Presents program management strategies for coordinating multiple agile data mart projects so that over time an enterprise data warehouse emerges Use the provided 120-day road map to establish a robust, agile data warehousing program

Umfassendes Scrum-Wissen aus der Praxis Mit Vorworten von Mike Cohn und Ron Jeffries Umfassendes Scrum-Wissen auf Team-, Produkt- und Portfolio-Ebene Kernkonzepte, Rollen, Planung und Sprints ausführlich erläutert Auch geeignet zur Vorbereitung auf die Scrum-Zertifizierung Aus dem Inhalt: 1. Teil: Kernkonzepte Scrum-Framework Agile Prinzipien Sprints Anforderungen und User Stories Das Product Backlog Schätzungen und Velocity Technische Schulden 2. Teil: Rollen Product Owner ScrumMaster Entwicklungsteam Strukturen des Scrum-Teams Manager 3. Teil: Planung Scrum-Planungsprinzipien Mehrstufige Planung Portfolio-Planung Visionsfindung/Produktplanung Release-Planung 4. Teil: Sprints Sprint-Planung Sprint-Ausführung Sprint Review Sprint-Retrospektive Dieses Buch beschreibt das Wesen von Scrum – die Dinge, die Sie wissen müssen, wenn Sie Scrum erfolgreich einsetzen wollen, um innovative Produkte und Dienstleistungen zu entwickeln. Es ist entstanden, weil der Autor Kenneth S. Rubin als Agile- und Scrum-Berater oft nach einem Referenzbuch für Scrum gefragt worden ist – einem Buch, das einen umfassenden Überblick über das Scrum-Framework bietet und darüber hinaus die beliebtesten Ansätze für die Anwendung von Scrum präsentiert. Dieses Buch ist der Versuch, die eine entscheidende Quelle für alles Wesentliche über Scrum bereitzustellen. Rubin beleuchtet die Werte, Prinzipien und Praktiken von Scrum und beschreibt bewährte, flexible Ansätze, die Ihnen helfen werden, sie viel effektiver umzusetzen. Dabei liefert er mehr als nur die Grundlagen und weist zudem auf wichtige Probleme hin, die Ihnen auf Ihrem Weg begegnen können. Ob Sie sich nun zum ersten Mal an Scrum versuchen oder es schon seit Jahren benutzen: Dieses Buch weiht Sie in die Geheimnisse des Scrum-Entwicklungsverfahrens ein und vermittelt Ihnen ein umfangreiches Scrum-Wissen auf Team-, Produkt- und Portfolio-Ebene. Für diejenigen, die bereits mit Scrum vertraut sind, eignet es sich als Scrum-Referenz. Rubin hat das Buch nicht für eine bestimmte Scrum-Rolle geschrieben. Stattdessen soll es allen, die direkt oder indirekt mit Scrum zu tun haben, ein gemeinsames Verständnis von Scrum und den Prinzipien, auf denen es beruht, vermitteln. Stellen Sie sich meine Überraschung und mein Entzücken vor, als ich feststellte, dass das Buch praktisch alles behandelt, was man über Scrum wissen muss – sowohl für Anfänger als auch für alte Hasen. Ron Jeffries (aus dem Vorwort) Über den Autor: Kenneth S. Rubin ist zertifizierter Scrum- und Agile-Trainer und -Berater und hilft Unternehmen, ihre Produktentwicklung effektiver und wirtschaftlicher zu gestalten. Er hat inzwischen mehr als 18.000 Menschen in den Bereichen Agile und Scrum, Organisation objektorientierter Projekte und Übergangsmanagement unterwiesen und Hunderten von Unternehmen als Berater zur Seite gestanden. Rubin war der erste Managing Director der weltweit agierenden Scrum Alliance und erfolgreich als Scrum-Product-Owner, ScrumMaster und Entwickler unterwegs.
