COLLABNET’S ANGELA DRUCKMAN DEBUTS NEW BOOK, “30 DAYS TO BETTER AGILE: EFFECTIVE STRATEGIES FOR GETTING RESULTS FAST USING SCRUM”
Enables organizations to more confidently roll-out Agile transformation – practitioners can utilize Druckman’s extensive experience as a software developer and leading Scrum trainer
DALLAS (Agile2012 Conference), Aug. 14, 2012, CollabNet® (www.collab.net), a global leader for Enterprise Cloud Development and Agile ALM, is pleased to announce the availability of Angela Druckman’s new book, 30 Days to Better Agile: Effective Strategies for Getting Results Fast Using Scrum. Druckman, a Certified Scrum Trainer and Agile Process Mentor with CollabNet, wrote the book based on her years of experience helping individuals, teams and organizations of all sizes achieve sustainable success with Agile-based projects and transformations.
The book enables Agile teams and their organizations to more confidently and successfully roll out Agile initiatives, as it addresses the most common issues that inhibit the success and value of Agile-based projects and transformation initiatives. Druckman’s research and hands-on work at organizations large and small, including public and private training, coaching and transformation consulting, captures success solutions and common scenarios that affect product owners, ScrumMasters, development teams, managers and stakeholders.
The book is making its debut at the Agile2012 Conference, where Druckman also is a featured speaker, and will be available in the Agile2012 book store and CollabNet’s booth. Druckman also is hosting a three-part webinar series based on the book starting on Sept. 18. To register for the free webinars please visit (http://visit.collab.net/30daystoagile-webinars.html).
“So many books on this topic are written by Agile experts for other Agile experts. I wanted to focus on the practitioner who is trying to implement Agile in their organization and is experiencing problems,” said Druckman. “The basis of this book comes from many sources and experiences working with great people and organizations. It’s really a guidebook, based on proven steps, for quickly achieving Agile success with Scrum.”
The book is divided into a time-boxed set of five-week sections, each covering issues and practical solutions, and suggests best practices that are important to a successful Agile deployment. In addition to an excellent overview of Agile and Scrum, the book’s five-week sections focus on: Week 1 – Roles; Week 2 – Crafting the Product Backlog; Week 3 – Anatomy of a Sprint; Week 4 – Estimation, Commitments and Project Management; and Week 5 – Creating an Action Plan.
