This is a book that shows Scrum for what it is: a simple framework that creates a container for you to work in smart and effective ways. With less distractions, more focus, and more collaboration.It reads short and simple because it is. Simple is not easy. DaVinci said simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. So, I skipped the fluff.I hope you enjoy this book. Let it remove misconceptions and please put in practice what you read. After all, this is not a novel. It’s a guide. In agile and in learning nothing beats practice. Doing.Try it with your teams, with yourself. And have fun!
