to help our teams (4 of them, each having its own Scrum Master and
Product Owner) properly start to implement Scrum, I was looking for
more than theory to get them started, to prevent them from common traps and
pitfalls. I was getting often the same questions and mistakes
in setting up the process. I had to find something to avoid writing my
own guide to Scrum…
And… I've found (actually I remembered a mail, a friend sent me a while back) the gem: "Scrum and XP from the Trenches" by Henrik Kniberg. This is an actual guide for implementing Scrum in your team, although the author says the reverse. It is answering a lot of practical questions and daily issues, staying away from dogmatism and often suggesting several solutions to needs (like: in what to should we keep the backlog? how could it be integrated with our issue tracker? etc.).
PS: plus, it gave me the first opportunity to actually use my new toy, an ebook reader, the Sony PRS-505. And I'm positively impressed by the level of reading comfort.
