Description

Have you ever seen a promising project get abandoned right when it seemed like it was getting ready to launch? An Introduction to SCRUM Project Management helps you avoid this common occurrence and highlights the key techniques for maintaining enthusiasm for a project across its lifetime. Scrum is a project management methodology that, when applied faithfully, will increase the rate at which your project is completed, the enjoyment your team has while working on the project, and the return on investment of the project, whether it's time, money, or what's being invested. This book includes instructions for using Assembla, and activities to introduce people to scrum and practice scrum activities. Soft skills sections help readers to understand not only the action to be taken and the principle, but also how to effectively communicate with others regarding scrum practices, particularly problem solving. An Introduction to SCRUM Project Management includes: * Activities to introduce people to scrum and practice scrum principles. These are fun ways to learn Scrum in a low pressure atmosphere where delivery and execution are not paramount. * Planning cards that make Scrum planning activities easier and feel more official are included for download and easy printing. * Do it now: tips for integrating the principle in a chapter right away, even if full scrum isn't yet fully understood and achievable.show more
