Your Scrum Playbook: It’s Poker, Not Chess

Have you ever heard of business being compared to a game of chess? If you’re a leader in any sector, you know business today feels more like a chaotic game of poker–one where you can’t see all the cards and you’re sure some opponents have an ace up their sleeve.

This book shows you how to use Scrum to create a winning hand from the cards you’ve been dealt. From a Scrum strategist and educator with years of experience across a variety of sectors, you’ll learn how to complete more work in less time while delivering better value to clients. By assembling the right team, creating the right ecosystem, learning to avoid the clutches of Frankenscrum, working with a Backlog and Sprints, and using the rest of the Scrum Framework, you may just find yourself playing a whole new game at your business–one that helps you respond to a quickly changing business landscape and poises you to win.
