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

use several conflict resolution techniques
