A Practical Guide to Distributed ScrumJuly 16th, 2010
I have received my copy of the recently published "A Practical Guide to Distributed Scrum". The book covers much of what I have already experienced in my role as an IT architect for 4 Scrum teams consisting of developers from Denmark, Lithuania, Belarus and India. So I look forward to read through the practical suggestions in the book to see if our teams can improve - and to see if I have other practical advices and lessons learned to add.
These are some of topics in the book that I find interesting:
- distributed teams
- backlog and release plans
- preparing for sprint planning
- the actual sprint planning
- continuous integration
- test automation
Update July 18: As commented by Matthew Ganis: 100% of the proceeds go to charity (Children's Hunger Fund and the Alzheimer's Association).
Update August 16: A Facebook page for A Practical Guide to Distributed Scrum is now available - and the web site for A Practical Guide to Distributed Scrum for has been updated.
