(San Francisco, Silicon Valley Scrum Press, 2021)

A comprehensive introduction the the Scrum Framework designed to give beginners a solid foundation upon which to build understanding.


Advanced Scrum Case Studies

(San Francisco, Silicon Valley Scrum Press, 2021)

Representing the collective experience of numerous Scrum practitioners, this book consists of 15 case studies involving problems of Agile transformation, onshore-offshore teams, scaled Scrum, cross-team dependencies, cross-functionality, self-management, Scrum mastery, product ownership, Sprint planning, engineering management, road maps, and stakeholders. Each case includes a detailed description of the problem, relevant background information, and a thorough explanation of how to apply the tools of the Scrum framework to resolve the problem. The material in this book comes from discussions held within the Silicon Valley Professional Scrum meetup group. Organized by Fred Fowler in 2015, this group has held regular Advanced Scrum Case Study discussions ever since. Each discussion revolves around a particular problem situation proposed by either Fred Fowler or another group member. Since its inception in 2015, the group has grown to more than 2,000 members coming from all parts of the world.

Fred’s case study sessions are amazing. [They] present real-life scenarios, and challenge fellow Agilists to critically examine them and discuss possible solutions... Participants are highly engaged when they are presenting and discussing these scenarios... This book is worth buying for that reason alone.
