    DescriptionThe rules and practices for Scrum-a simple process for managing complex projects-are few, straightforward, and easy to learn. But Scrum's simplicity itself-its lack of prescription-can be disarming, and new practitioners often find themselves reverting to old project management habits and tools and yielding lesser results. In this illuminating series of case studies, Scrum co-creator and evangelist Ken Schwaber identifies the real-world lessons-the successes and failures-culled from his years of experience coaching companies in agile project management. Through them, you'll understand how to use Scrum to solve complex problems and drive better results-delivering more valuable software faster. Gain the foundation in Scrum theory-and practice-you need to: * Rein in even the most complex, unwieldy projects * Effectively manage unknown or changing product requirements * Simplify the chain of command with self-managing development teams * Receive clearer specifications-and feedback-from customers * Greatly reduce project planning time and required tools * Build-and release-products in 30-day cycles so clients get deliverables earlier * Avoid missteps by regularly inspecting, reporting on, and fine-tuning projects * Support multiple teams working on a large-scale project from many geographic locations * Maximize return on investment!
