FIXING YOUR SCRUM
Broken Scrum practices limit your organization’s ability to take full advantage of the agility Scrum should bring: The development team isn’t cross-functional or self-organizing, the product owner doesn’t get value for their investment, and stakeholders and customers are left wondering when something–anything–will get delivered. Learn how experienced Scrum masters balance the demands of these three levels of servant leadership, while removing organizational impediments and helping Scrum teams deliver real-world value. Discover how to visualize your work, resolve impediments, and empower your teams to self-organize and deliver using advanced coaching and facilitation techniques that honor and support the Scrum values and agile principles.

Fixing Your Scrum book
LOVED this book. I’m a Scrum Master going through a Waterfall to Agile/Scrum transformation with my company and this book has great solutions for the issues we are experiencing. It’s comforting to know we are not alone and Todd and Ryan have seen this many times before. They know what works, and what doesn’t, to get teams back on track. There are so many things that I want to try that I can’t wait for my next Retrospective to get these changes going. I know it’ll make my teams perform much better.
