Scrum is the most popular approach to Agile software development. It’s been around for more than 20 years, and it’s used by tens of millions of practitioners. Even so, by some estimates, over 70% of Scrum adoptions fall flat and get stuck. Developers find themselves using “Zombie Scrum” processes that look like Scrum from a distance, but are slow, lifeless, and joyless instead. Zombie Scrum Survival Guide doesn’t just reveal why this happens: it shows how to supercharge your Scrum outcomes, and have more fun along the way.
Writing for all individuals, teams, and organizations who want to achieve more with Scrum, this guide combines theoretical foundations with practical approaches, exercises, and facilitation techniques for making progress in widely diverse situations, and engaging everyone in the organization to get more out of Scrum. You’ll find specific guidance for building what the user needs, shipping faster, improving continuously, self-organizing your teams, and more. Drawing on extensive experience empowering developers, the authors also introduce powerful Liberating Structures patterns for enriching group interactions, so Scrum makes development more effective and fulfilling for everyone involved.
