Fixing Your Scrum: Practical Solutions to Common Scrum Problems

A ScrumMaster's work is never done. The development team needs your support, the product owner is lost in the complexities of agile product management, and your managers and stakeholders need to know what will be done, by when, and for how much. Learn how experienced ScrumMasters balance the demands of these three levels of servant leadership while removing organizational impediments and helping their Scrum teams deliver real value. Ryan Ripley will show you how to bring life back to your Scrum events by leveraging the full intelligence of your team. Improve your retrospectives with new formats and exercises, ask powerful questions that spark introspection and improvement, get support and buy-in from management, and create a definition of done that improves quality. You’ll discover how to visualize your work, resolve impediments, and empower your teams to self-organize and deliver by using Scrum values, agile principles, and advanced coaching and facilitation techniques. Transform your Scrum practices and help your teams enjoy their work again as they deliver high-quality products that bring value to the world.
