Optional Reading for the Course

Exploring Scrum: The Fundamentals (People, Product, and Practices) by Dan Rawsthorne and Doug ShimpDan Rawsthorne and Doug Shimp have trained and coached thousands of people, most of them whom are already using Scrum, their most common complaint is that they need help to do it right.  And many (if not most) of them need some help.

This book is for them and others like them.

This book is not an introductory text. Dan and Doug assume that those who read this book know, or think they know, something about Scrum. This book takes a deep, exploratory, look into the Scrum framework, and offers advice about how to think about it, and how to use it. Some of this advice is philosophical, some is pragmatic, some is practical, and some of it is controversial.
