Scrum: a Breathtakingly Brief and Agile Introduction by Chris SimsThe book is extremely short. Its more of summary notes rather than an introduction.
Scrum is an easy set of rules for a small team of about seven people to complete a project. Its success is due to the practice of inspect and adapt after each sprint (typically a 2-week iteration to complete an agreed upon list of deliverables). The focus is not tasks done but results delivered after each sprint. There are three roles: product owner, scrum master, and development team. The product owner is responsible for articulating the requirements and prioritizing (i.e., product backlog) so the most valuable work is done in the beginning (something good now is better than something perfect planned for the future). The scrum master acts as a coach to the development team - increase their skills in applying agile practices, remove obstacles impeding their progress, and facilitate sprint meetings. The development team is highly collaborative and self-organizing. The theory is that the people who do the work are the most knowledgeable in how best to do it.
