Geeks With Blogs

Scott Kuhl Warning: I may have no idea what I am talking about!

Its been awhile since I added anything to my Library collection I started on this blog.  Its not that I don't have more to add, I just keep forgetting.  I have several more titles I want to post, so I'll try picking up the pace.

Book five is Agile Software Development with SCRUM by Ken Schwaber and Mike Beedle (ISBN 0130676349).

Scrum is an agile, lightweight process that can be used to manage and control software and product development using iterative, incremental practices. Wrapping existing engineering practices, including Extreme Programming and RUP, Scrum generates the benefits of agile development with the advantages of a simple implementation. Scrum significantly increases productivity and reduces time to benefits while facilitating adaptive, empirical systems development.

I have been practicing Scrum now for about 18 months and I am now a full convert to the agile methods.  Anything I did to explain the Scrum process in a single post would not do it justice.  If you are looking for a great project management solution, try Scrum.  And this is the book to guide you through it.

For a very good overview of Scrum try Mountain Goat Software.

This book is not available on Safari Bookshelf.
