Testing Circus, January 2015 Issue

Testing Circus is a free to download monthly International Software Testing Magazine. The magazine is subscribed by thousands of software testers worldwide. The January Issue has just been released.

It contains many cool articles, among which my description of the SCRUM Battle.  The SCRUM battle is an ideal way to introduce the SCRUM way of working in an engaging way. The SCRUM battle is a simulation game in which 2-4 teams experience how to work in an Agile team. It has been designed to introduce SCRUM to stakeholders from e.g. the business, operational, management or Sales. But is also helps developers and testers to get a good feel about SCRUM.
