This book is a comprehensive cheat sheet, saving you the years of heartache and frustration you’d experience if you were forced to learn all of this through trial and error. It has everything you need, from an overview of Scrum and why it works, to practical tips to create and guide your Scrum team to deliver at a world-class level.
Most important, it has explanations of the technical tools and techniques your team needs to deliver rock-solid software on a consistent and predictable basis. However, it’s not written for a technical audience. Everything is spelled out in plain English, so you’ll be able to understand it even if you’re not technical.
This book has been written for the following readers:
- Traditional project management offices and managers that are transitioning into Agile and using Scrum as a framework.
- Newly-certified Scrum Masters and Product Owners.
- Technical Managers
- Experienced Scrum team members
- Anyone who wants to know more about Scrum and how to make it work.

It's eye-catching but not so sure about the white background
I like the combination of photograph and graphics.
I like the fact that it's different from a traditional IT book.
What colors do you want to see in your design?
Other color requirements
We would like the designers to give us their suggestions. We don't want it to be the typical IT book or textbook style.
We would like the designers to give us their creative ideas and thoughts.
