Zombie Scrum Survival Guide (Addison-Wesley)
Monday, 05 July 2021

Scrum is the #1 approach to agile software development in the world, but by some estimates, over 70% of Scrum adoptions fall flat. Developers find themselves using “Zombie Scrum” processes that look like Scrum, but are slow, lifeless, and joyless. Christiaan Verwijs, Johannes Schartau and Barry Overeem reveal why Scrum runs aground and shows how to supercharge your Scrum outcomes, while having a lot more fun along the way.

<ASIN:0136523269>

Humorous, visual, and extremely relatable, it offers practical approaches, exercises, and tools for escaping Zombie Scrum. Even if you are surrounded by skeptics, this book will be the antidote to help you build more of what users need, ship faster, improve more continuously, interact more successfully in any team, and feel a whole lot better about what you are doing.
