Graffius is not joking when he says in his title this has step by step instructions. He is quite thorough with his details. This book gave me a lot of knowledge that I didn’t have before. I still don’t know if it’s a world that I want to go into, but it’s nice to know that if I do this book gave me the first steps in knowing what to do. Especially because Graffius broke down the information into easily understandable portions. It was also helpful to see all the extra things he added to the book for resources that have more materials to look at. People like me really need that kind of thing.
This book is a must have for anyone looking to become innovate in a quickly changing world. You will fin all the ideas in the book helpful. If you’re already in the industry, you’ll want to implement these strategies immediately.
I have to agree with the Agile moniker in so many ways it really does speak to the versatility that this method of this method can offer. Usually Scrums come from the Information Technology arena, however with Agile Scrum the applications are much more broad. This really could be the right way for businesses to handle project management, and perhaps even family budget meetings and the like.
This is the perfect edition to what I call the business management trifecta now, 5S, Lean Sigma Six, and now the addition of a properly implemented Scrum.
For any project manager, or even just any leader in general I can not recommend “Agile Scrum: Your Quick Start Guide with Step-by-Step Instructions [Print Replica] Kindle Edition by Scott M. Graffius (Author)” high enough.
If you don't know what Scrum is, it's an agile methodology to manage team (and even individual) projects better and focus on pushing out quality products in time, based in sprints and having a well organized backlog of pending tasks. The book does a great job explaining everything in detail, and if you're looking to get into agile, I cannot recommend any other book better.
Something that stands out of the book by Scott M. Graffius is that it doesn't focus only on software developement, the most popular use of Scrum, but makes it more general.
All in all a really good read and a great starting point for improving your product making methodology. Worth the read equally for project managers, developers, and beginners.
