Book review that I left on Amazon.com for "The People's Scrum" by Tobias Mayer
As an agile coach with years of experience and much reading, I am refreshed to finally find something so unique and insightful on the topic of Scrum. Tobias has captured what Scrum is really like, from the trenches so to speak. In publishing this book, I feel Tobias was courageous enough to call out what others have been unable to see or just afraid to say in the wider scrum community. I am grateful not only for the insights, but for the public display of courage.
You’ve read the Cohn series of scrum books. You’ve applied all the cookie cutter methods – story points, planning poker, modified Fibonacci sequence, Scrum of Scrums, burn down charts, team agreements, definition of ready, meta- scrum etc. etc. and something still doesn’t fit. If this is you, then you are likely to be ready for this book and possibly also ready to call yourself an agile anarchist.
This is now my number one favourite book on Scrum.
