Just Finished Reading “Scrum and XP from the Trenches” #scrum #xp
In the company I work for they are introducing the Agile FrameWork, in the form of SCRUM and XP. I’ve worked with Agile before, mostly as a contractor – with a heavy Prince2 background – to companies not assigned directly to a team or in a small team using the SCRUM framework as a loose guideline. So besides from cursory reading of documentation I have rarely had anything to do with the way a SCRUM team is managed. In this company I was asked to perform the task of SCRUM Master, so I started reading up on the role and requirements.
To aid me in this I just finished reading Scrum and XP from the Trenches (How we do Scrum) by Henrik Kniberg, which is an examination of the methodology and framework of SCRUM from an implementation view, based on examples. I found it extremely enlightening and funny to read, I think it helps that he is honest in what has worked for him and his team, and
“[i]t is this … focus on doing rather than theorizing that distinguishes this book.”
An enlightening read.
