Last year Valori published the e-book “Agile in the real world, starting with Scrum“. Together with the Bits & Chips magazine I produced a practical guide for organizations that want to make the most of their Scrum implementation!
This e-book was a great success considering the responses we have received in recent months and the number of downloads. It confirms our analysis that many professionals are adopting Scrum or are seeking ways to get more out of their agile development process. Especially for them I decided to rework the eBook into a more substantial physical edition.
Artist impression of the physical book. The cover artwork is not yet finished but will look distinctive from the eBook cover.
For the physical book the original chapters have been revised and supplemented with more examples from the real world. The original text has been expanded with new chapters on the Scrum implementation model (the three stages that continue to be a Scrum transition), the refinement process, the preparation of the Definition of Done and using the definition of Ready. Finally I added tips for setting up the sprint review and the final chapter explains the relationship between the initial phases of the Scrum transition with the ultimate goal: Business Agility. This were I briefly put Scaling Agile, the operating model, product thinking and Governance into context.
I am pleased to announce that the manuscript is sent to the editor and I am awaiting the print-proof soon. The physical book is published in Dutch be available later this year. The before mentioned e-book is no longer available for download. But fill in your details on the form and you will receive notice as soon as the physical book is available.
