The Scrum Primer: A Lightweight Guide to the Theory and Practice of Scrum (Pete Deemer, et al)

A Lightweight Guide to the Theory and Practice of Scrum is this book.

In today's unstable world, traditional development methods like single-function groups, weak or delayed feedback loops, frontloaded predictive planning, and a sequential analysis to test flow are not very effective. Due to the lack of genuine functional software until late in the game, this method delays feedback, learning, and possible returns on investment, which results in a lack of transparency, a lack of ability to develop, a reduction in flexibility, and an increase in business and technical risks. Although it has been around for a long time, the alternative model of cross-functional teams with iterative development has not been as popular.

Scrum includes actual teams, cross-functional teams, self-managing teams, brief iterative full-cycle feedback loops, and minimizing the cost of change in a framework that has been demonstrated to work for product development. These ideas boost responsiveness and agility, permit earlier ROI, and lower risk. Cross-functional teams can create projects or products using the Scrum framework in an incremental, iterative way. Sprints are the work cycles used to structure development. The Team presents what it has created and conducts a stakeholder evaluation of the Sprint at its conclusion. People receive comments that can be used in the upcoming Sprint. Scrum places a strong emphasis on having a working product that is truly "done" at the conclusion of each Sprint; for software projects, this means a system that is integrated, thoroughly tested, end-user documented, and possibly shippable. Although there are numerous succinct explanations of Scrum online, this primer seeks to go into more depth on the methods.
