Foreword by Ron Jeffries & Afterword by Lyssa Adkins

Tobias Mayer has always brought both enthusiasm and skepticism to scrum. Whether you agree or disagree with him, and you're likely to do both, the essays in this book will always give you something worth thinking about.

Mike Cohn, author of Succeeding with Agile: Software Development using Scrum

Tobias Mayer’s signature move is to pick up a stone and throw it through our glass house, smashing our old paradigms and causing us, after some pain and turmoil, to say, “OK, my comfortable way doesn’t work anymore. Now what?”

Lyssa Adkins, author of Coaching Agile Teams

Tobias Mayer has a really interesting mind: wide, deep, imaginative, and quirky. I value the quirky most because it's unpredictable. But in hindsight his jumps reveal themselves as the result of intelligence and rigor. What's more, he gets those jumps gracefully down on paper so that we can all participate.

Lee Devin, author of Artrful Making and The Soul of Design

Tobias Mayer is known in the agile community as a brilliant and evangelical orator, an innovative trainer and an extraordinary trouble maker. You could call him the Hunter S. Thompson of the software arena, and no one who knows him would laugh. This book is a collection of essays drawn from his writing over the past seven years on the blogs Agile Thinking and Agile Anarchy, missives from the front lines of agile practice that represent the next generation of thinking on conventional agile topics like self-organization, technical debt and estimation–and utterly original writing on new topics like organizational anarchy, corporate oppression, the effect of testosterone on business practices, and artisanal product development.

Moving beyond the mere how-to, this is a book to excite the emotions and the intellect in those of us who have chosen the path of scrum to guide us in our work lives. Not since Paul Graham’s Hackers and Painters has the discussion of software development been elevated to this level of world-view-changing discourse. In Tobias Mayer, technology has an exciting new voice to lead us into the brave new world of agile practice.

Bisher habe ich viel Theorie gelesen und immer wieder dieselben Sachen dabei aufgenommen. Hier umschreibt der Autor jedoch sehr schön, wieviel Gefühl und Einfühlung ein Coach auch mitbringen muss, um erfolgreich zu sein.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Revolution with lack of vision 4. Dezember 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
In my view, in his book Tobias Mayer reiterates some well-known stances other Scrum Coaches have taken as well, putting them to the extreme: the core of Scrum are self-organized teams (a position shared by many Scrum experts) and should also be largely self-directed (a position in which Tobias Mayer stands rather alone). He depicts the "good" Scrum teams as if they were surrounded by ominous organizations that oppresses them. Those bad organizations need to be bereft of power and be substituted … by what? Tobias Mayer seem to lack the vision what else should synchronize teams to pursue a mutual goal and strategy instead of "the organization". So all-in-all to me this is a book that inspires reflection by taking such a radical position. It also provides valuable experience of what can help teams to develop well. But it is not a book that offers groundbreaking news, particularly not a new vision to balance the old skepticism of large organizations (with large defined as anything bigger than a Scrum-team size)

5.0 von 5 Sternen The most important book on Scrum since the original 9. Juni 2013
Von Matt Roberts - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Without a doubt, this is THE most important book on Scrum that has been published since the original.

As I read this book, it reminded me of the first time I read the Agile Manifesto--my head was nodding in accord so many times, I nearly became dizzy.

Based on the foreword, I was convinced that I would find something to disagree with Tobias on and was looking forward to the opportunity to have a great conversation with him and potentially have my mind expanded. But I didn't...I couldn't find anything to disagree with as his views are so close to my own. I suppose that comes as no surprise as one of my early strong influences was Kert Peterson as well. We also seem to share strongly-held (as in concrete reinforced with rebar) views on the importance of humanity, decentralization, and co-location in innovative and creative work.

I suppose I didn't learn too many new things in the book, but they were told in a way to convey important meaning to the people who actually do the work and are the main focus for the Scrum framework. Of course executives and managers should also be exposed to these ideas as they are (fortunately or unfortunately) ultimately responsible for maintaining or at least spawning the systems where the workers create value. These are the people that will receive the most benefit of these essays as I share them with the teams I serve and advise others in the community and our industry.

I plan on ordering five copies of this immediately and sharing with the Agile Austin community. We will likely conduct a book discussion group on this book in the July timeframe and will report back with comments and observations.

Thank you Tobias for this important compendium of essays that continue to be sorely needed across our industry to maximize joy and potential of our people, organizations, and technology users.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Couldn't put it down 13. Mai 2013
Von Karen Greaves - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to be successful with Scrum. I read it in 2 sittings on concurrent evenings and I rarely read that much!

Lyssa Adkins says it best in the afterword. Tobias doesn't pull any punches in his writing. Most Scrum books explain rules and 'best' practice. In this book Tobias offers opinions. His own. Even better, he is okay with contradicting himself as he does with 3 different view points on estimation written over several years. The book offers insight into Tobias' thinking around Scrum over many years, which interestingly maps quite well to several other leading agile thinkers.

If you want to read what Scrum is, get another book. If you want to understand how it lives and breathes, and has grown and changed over the last 5 years, get this book. I assure you there will be at least one idea that makes you uncomfortable. I didn't like the one about the ScrumMaster role being optional... But as you read, it will challenge you to see another point of view and learn from it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A soulful, passionate and heartfelt book about the soul of Scrum 9. Mai 2013
Von Tom Howlett - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Tobias's writing is very different to anything else I have read about Scrum. He writes about the culture, empowerment and self organisation that allow the 'people' who create software to work unconstrained and as effectively as they are able. This is a book about continually learning from each other and discovering better ways of working rather than following rules and fixed processes. In the five years since our team adopted scrum I've understood more and more that this is the stuff that makes the difference and this is why good Scrum teams become so much happier and effective.

In a world of corporate procedures, process and quick fixes, its easy to forget that 'this' is what lies at the root of scrum and agile development and I will be regularly re-reading the essays in this book to remind me of the beauty and soul that emerges when people are left to work together unhindered by command and control.

Don't read this book if you are looking for a quick fix to your late project, read this book if you believe in people and want to discover better ways to build software in a collaborative way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Reminds us why we got excited about agile in the first place 25. Mai 2013
Von Lisa Crispin - Veröffentlicht auf
I remember how excited I was back in 2000 when some colleagues starting a new company gave me Kent Beck's _XP Explained_ to me to read. It was all about quality! And it really seemed like it might be a way to get customers what they wanted in a timely manner!

I've worked on several agile (and not so agile, tho I didn't work on those for long) teams since then, and co-written my own books about agile testing. I'm fortunate to work with a wonderful team of people passionate about delivering quality and value for our customers. But in the day to day push to get new features out the door, it's easy to lose sight of the need to continually reflect and improve.

Tobias' essays reminded me of what really matters. I don't agree with all his opinions - for example, I work on a distributed team, it is a real team with the right people on it, and it works well. But whether you agree or not is beside the point. As you read, you will think, you will be inspired, you'll be eager to discuss some new ideas with your own team.

I've noted down some of the insights Tobias shared about timeboxes and rhythm, about why tracking hours on tasks hides impediments, about the downsides of project culture. These will feed my own experiments at work and my own reflection and writing for some time to come.

The essays are short and sweet. Read one and see where it leads you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen beautifully written 3. September 2013
Von Craig - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I think this book by Tobias is beautifully written. There is real craftmanship in the prose here.

The book is made up of independent self contained stories and reflections on various themes related to the Agile Software Development movement. Each one is a parable seeking to impart some of Tobias' wisdom onto the reader.

Hopefully people will be open to the ideas. It isn't for beginners or for people who think agility is about technical excellence alone. It is about values and mindsets and the way we choose to live.

Some of the parables are better than others, and it is slightly uneven, but overall, it has a great message and is of great quality.

You may well already know everything he wants to share, but hearing these stories and reignite spirit and passion, and if this ideas are new to you, then you'll be charged and energised at the opportunities waiting for you.
