Free eBook: Agile in the real world, Starting with SCRUM

The end of 2015 is approaching quickly. While we are busy getting everything ready just before the holiday season, for many it’s also a period to start thinking about the coming year. Having the right knowledge and insights enables you the have a head start. Therefore, I offer you my latest eBook as a free Christmas read.


Agile in the real world, starting with SCRUM is a practical guide full of tips to get started and make most out of one of the leading trend in the field of software development.

The unique collaboration with the Dutch Bits & Chips Magazine enabled me to publish this ebook. The chapters of this book have been presented to the Bits & Chips readers in subsequent articles. This enabled me to collect reactions of the readers and merge them into this ebook. The result is an easy reading book that has its origin in the real world and contains contributions of many Scrum practitioners. It is not about the cutting-edge innovations that only few organizations make; it describes the things we encounter every day. The book is filled with recognisable dilemmas and practical tips. I am therefore convinced that contributes to the success of your Scrum transitions or will help you shaping your New Year’s resolution to finally get started with SCRUM.

You can download the book (in Dutch) for free
