Hello Authors,

I am going to work on Scrum based project, so my question is, Is this a book to understand Scrum based Agile development process? If not then can I still benefit from following this book?

Regards
Param

Hi Parama,

Most Scrum teams adopt XP terminology and practices, so I think you'll find the book very compatible with what you'll be doing. We have a cross-reference early in the book that shows how the Scrum practices map to the practices in the book. The practices in the book are a superset of Scrum's practices.

Cheers,
Jim

In fact, Scrum is a pure project management method - it doesn't tell you at all how to actually build *software*. Many Scrum teams adopt their engineering practices from XP.

The project management practices of XP are quite similar to Scrum practices, but often are referred to by different names.

So reading the book might not the best way to learn the terminology your team will be using, but from what I've read from the early preview chapters, it's a great way to learn how a well working Agile team will function.
 
Story like this gets better after being told a few times. Or maybe it's just a tiny ad:
