Pressestimmen

"Great books give you advice you can follow, and Scrum Shortcuts without Cutting Corners most definitely does. Written to suit newcomers or experienced practitioners who have a healthy interest in Scrum, the knowledge contained in this book can be game changing. Ilan Goldstein shares his extensive global experience to produce a well written and valuable insight into practicing and sustaining effective agile practices." -Kevin Austin, Agile coach and transition lead, Fortune 50 investment bank "A software team succeeds because it has the right people who are allowed to do their best work. Understanding the patterns and anti-patterns (my favorite anti-pattern-'test sprint') in this guidebook will help you know who the right people are and how to help them work well. These shortcuts focus on people, and that's why they work. Get your team (and the rest of your company) reading and discussing this today."-Lisa Crispin, coauthor with Janet Gregory, of "Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams" "Ilan Goldstein has earned a loyal following in the Agile community for his no nonsense advice and practical solutions that deliver real results for teams. I'm thrilled that he's been able to distill this expertise into a book that's rich with insights and also very readable. I can't wait to use all his best ideas in my own practice!"-Pete Deemer, CEO of Stormglass and author of "The Scrum Primer" "This book is an outstanding reference for anyone using Scrum to build software. Whether you are an experienced practitioner or a beginner just starting out, you'll find something worthy in here that you can learn and apply right away. Ilan's casual and engaging writing style describes perfectly the real-world challenges that you may face when using Scrum, and gives you practical guidance for working through them."-Ryan Dorrell, CTO, AgileThought "I especially like the essay style. It invites me to skip around to find topics of interest, and makes it easy to find what Ilan thinks about things. Ilan takes us over ground we've covered before, but he gives us a fresh look at things. Very valuable!"-Ron Jeffries, coauthor of "The Agile Manifesto" and founder of xprogramming.com "Scrum is not a solution. Your solution will only become clear through a journey of inspection and adaptation. The journey is not straightforward, and you will make some mistakes as you try to customize Scrum to your organization. Ilan's work for me is a Hitch Hiker's Guide to Scrum, giving you insights, tools, approaches, and belief to support you. I really appreciate the openness in Ilan's stories and how he shares his experiences. I don't have to agree with every technique or idea, as Ilan is not trying to instruct. He is asking you to think; to challenge your assumptions and help you on your way."-Martin Kearns, Scrum trainer and national Agile and innovation lead at SMS Management & Technology "Most books about Scrum are on theory and speak from a distant third-person perspective. They are hard to read. Ilan has created the opposite. He has created a book that feels like a conversation.

Kurzbeschreibung

I’ve followed Ilan’s work for a few years and it has been invaluable in avoiding the common grey areas that crop up as you begin to implement SCRUM. This book is an invaluable resource for any upstarting SCRUM pioneer to help you make the transition. Knowing the theory is essential and there are many books that will explain the finer details of the theory behind SCRUM but few will prepare you for the challenges that will face you on a day-to-day basis. As a great pioneer once said, “there is a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.” Ilan has walked the path and he took notes.

HASH(0x9f73eaa8) von 5 Sternen Insight into what you are up against with Scrum 3. Oktober 2013
Von T Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The first thought that came to mind when I saw this book was, "Uhg, another Scrum book, you've got to be kidding me." Then the title of Scrum Shortcuts really gave me a sickening feeling. The majority of the Scrum teams I have watched work do nothing but take shortcuts. They sure as heck don't need a book on how to take more of them!!!

Luckily, throughout the book, the rest of the title holds true - without Cutting Corners. Personally I would have titled the book "Agile Tactics, Tools, & Tips for Real Scrum Teams - No Poseurs Allowed".

One of the first things the author covers is the Scrum sales pitch. He points out that it is a pretty simple sale to make. I have witnessed that personally several times.

I was sitting in a meeting some time ago with a company that was embracing Scrum like a ten year old being offered a warm plate of chocolate chip cookies. They were grabbing at it as fast as they're little hands could reach out and grab the goodies.

Watching this made me wonder what is was about Scrum that made them embrace it so emphatically. They had claimed to be an Agile shop for years, but were still failing to deliver quality software on time within budget. In past years they refused every single proposed process improvement recommendation made by dozens of consultants. They literally went from zero process (using the name Agile to execute no process at all) to zealot Scrumbots overnight.

What I like most about this book is that it is really down to earth. The author does not pull punches when it comes to pointing out that it might be easy to sell Scrum, backing up your pitch with a highly effective Scrum implementation is a very different story.

The team I mentioned above crashed and burned after a few months. They were still using Scrum vocabulary, but were the farthest thing from an effective Scrum team as you could get.

The author hits it on the head with shortcut 2 when he says -- one of the most frustrating comments that I hear when speaking to novice software teams is, "We do Scrum--we work in sprints, we have a daily scrum, and we even have a product backlog." In addition, although they may not explicitly say it, you can often add, "We don't write any documentation, we release haphazardly, we plan on the fly, and we don't care about buggy code because we'll just fix it up with a bug iteration." ARGH! These people give Scrum a terrible name, and worse still, when their projects inevitably fail, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to win back the senior stakeholders who have been burnt by a badly warped Scrum implementation.

The author packs a ton of wisdom into this fairly short book. I have listed the chapters below with the shortcuts they contain.

Chapter 1. Scrum Startup
Shortcut 1: Scrum on the Pitch
Shortcut 2: Fragile Agile
Shortcut 3: Creative Comfort

Chapter 2. Attitudes and Abilities
Shortcut 4: Masterful ScrumMaster
Shortcut 5: Rock Stars or Studio Musicians?
Shortcut 6: Picking Your Team Line-Up

Chapter 3. Planning and Protecting
Shortcut 7: Setting the Scrum Stage
Shortcut 8: Plan the Sprint, Sprint the Plan
Shortcut 9: Incriminating Impediments

Chapter 4. Requirement Refinement
Shortcut 10: Structuring Stories
Shortcut 11: Developing the Definition of Done
Shortcut 12: Progressive Revelations

Chapter 5. Establishing Estimates
Shortcut 13: Relating to Estimating
Shortcut 14: Planning Poker at Pace
Shortcut 15: Transitioning Relatively

Chapter 6. Questioning Quality
Shortcut 16: Bah! Scrum Bug!
Shortcut 17: We Still Love the Testers!
Shortcut 18: Automation Nation

Chapter 7. Monitoring and Metrics
Shortcut 19: Metrics That Matter
Shortcut 20: Outstanding Stand-Ups
Shortcut 21: Taming the Task Board

Chapter 8. Retros, Reviews, and Risks
Shortcut 22: To-Dos for Your Sprint Reviews
Shortcut 23: Retrospective Irrespective
Shortcut 24: Risk Takers and Mistake Makers

Chapter 9. Managing the Managers
Shortcut 25: Perception Is Reality
Shortcut 26: Our Lords and Masters
Shortcut 27: Morphing Managers in the Matrix

Chapter 10. Larger Lessons
Shortcut 28: Scrum Rollout Reckoning
Shortcut 29: Eyes on the Prize
Shortcut 30: Shortcut to the Final Level

The author's realistic view of Scrum is a refreshing one. He is not one of the many Scrum zealots, mindlessly regurgitating Scrum mantras and bashing every other process that came before Scrum hit the mainstream. He presents a realistic view on how difficult Scrum is. Scrum is not easy and the author makes that very clear.

Shortcut 5 was the only one I felt was a bit off. He made his point, but I have had a different experience with people. Maybe because I have family members that are Rock Stars and I know the best musicians are those that can handle being a rock star on tour, but also make excellent studio musicians. They put on the show for the live fans, but also lay down the tracks for their producers. In order to be successful in both roles they need to have the confidence to play live and be humble enough to let someone else guide them through the creation of a record. They are also team players in both roles. I think shortcut 5 would have been better explained as the No A-hole Rule. I personally have met many more unskilled arrogant people, than I have highly skilled arrogant people. The unskilled people are usually insecure in their abilities, so they attempt to camouflage it, which comes off as defensive or arrogant.

Chapter 3 touches on team stability and working environments. Since I left the electronic engineering field I have not had an office with a door except at my home office. I have sat at tables where all the printers were for the office. The printing noise wasn't bad, but the people standing around talking, waiting for the slow printers, was a problem.

At work I am currently in a cube that is noisy 25% to 75% of a given day. I share it with one of the main application support guys on our team, and he often has a line waiting to see him. While they wait I am an open target for them to kill the wait time talking to me.

Another thing about the office is they keep it hot in the winter and hot in the summer. I have to keep a fan blowing on me and by the end of every week my eyes are wind burnt and bloodshot. My chair I have at work has me going to the chiropractor. They were going to buy us new chairs, but discovered they were too expensive, and we aren't allowed to bring our own chair in.

I work from home on Mondays. My home desk provides me twice the area I have at work. I have the room at a cool 68F. I have a great ergonomic chair. If I get a call I can put it on speaker phone, instead of having to hold it to my ear with my shoulder.

Context switching is always a big problem. The book refers to it in the context of fractional assignment. I work from home on Mondays and I would estimate I get 20 - 80% more work done on Mondays than any other day of the week because I have the isolated environment I need to think. To get hold of me people IM, email, or call if needed, but I can queue them until I am done with what I am working on. At the office if you don't answer right away they come to your cube and interrupt your thoughts. Once you start context switching like a pinball you become ineffective at everything. Some days are just fire days. I would have literally been a day ahead of where my day ended if I would have just called off.

I thought that every chapter in this book contained wisdom worth reading and learning. Two chapters that stand out are Requirement Refinement and Establishing Estimates. Of all the problems I see with Scrum teams these two things are always a big problem. They are never properly address because the misconception that requirements change all the time in agile environments, and therefore the timelines change too, seems to be a mantra of immature teams.

Scrum is not a one size fits all process. The author does a great job of pointing out that it is a framework. Scrum would be a fine team level project management process for one of the projects I am currently on, because the developers on the team are awesome. We are actually not using any defined process. The reason for that is the primary developer builds everything with modifiability in mind and we have very solid requirements. The architecture make use of some very well-known patterns and open source libraries that including MVC, DI with Unity, repository, unit of work, using Entity Framework 5. Architecture done right allows for agile practices to happen without effort. The developers code the project and I document it by creating a Developer's Builders Guide. As a team of 3 that has worked together often, and with solid requirements in place, we just build it.

Other projects I have seen that do not qualify for Scrum alone, are some of the large COTS and development projects that have requirements that are not just fluid, but are like a Class VI rapid. They need the structure of Disciplined Agile Delivery or the Scaled Agile Framework (SAF). These processes can use Scrum as the development management process, but they supplement it with architectural and enterprise level activities.

Over all this is a great read. The author's writing style makes this a pleasure to read and he crams a lot of wisdom into 200 pages. I would recommend this book to anyone involved with Scrum in anyway. Do not be lured in by the desire to find a silver bullet process, there is none. Books like this can give insight into what you are up against before you have to learn the lesson the hard way, by going through it yourself.

HASH(0x99cc8480) von 5 Sternen The Holy Grail for Scrum teams 31. Juli 2013
Von Arik Kogan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The guidance Goldstein provides in this book is invaluable. It's the Holy Grail for Scrum teams looking to take their performance to the next level as this book shows us how to continuously improve what we do and how we should do it without compromising the tenets of Scrum. I have already started applying a lot of Goldstein's advice especially around team structuring, establishing baseline estimates, handling bugs, slicing stories into workable tasks, engaging with testers, tracking impediments and defining key metrics to use. His writing style is candid and fluid with plenty of humour allowing me to read it in a couple of sittings which for me is really important as life is short and I need to be able to apply lessons ASAP! I also really like the fact that every one of the 30 'Shortcuts' is about four pages long yet each still contains its own very useful specific advice. His real-world and highly pragmatic focus gets straight to the point where other authors have tripped and stumbled over theory which had recently turned me off books in this genre. Oh, and the titles are awesome - one of my favourites: "Bah, Scrum Bug!" Get this book. Now.

HASH(0x99cbfa2c) von 5 Sternen Excellent. A must have for all Scrum Masters 26. Juli 2013
Von Richard Kaupins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've been working with Agile teams for over 6 years now, and read most of what's out there. I was hugely surprised to find that this book offered so many original, practical ideas, not found in any other book or resource. Its concise chapters and entertaining writing style actually made it enjoyable to read - something quite rare with technical books!

Whether you're new to Scrum or a senior Scrum Master, this is definitely one book you will want to read to take your skills and knowledge in this area to a new level.

HASH(0x99cc6654) von 5 Sternen Excellent book for those who want to get the job done with Scrum! 26. Juli 2013
Von Kenneth S. Rubin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Ilan is an experienced practitioner, coach, and trainer and those skills were necessary to write such a practical hands-on book about how to get the job done with Scrum. Only someone who has been in the trenches can provide such important descriptions of the tactics, tools, and tips for applying Scrum. Only someone who is experienced in coaching and training others could communicate these things in such a clear and understandable way. Scrum Shortcuts without Cutting Corners is definitely not a book you want on your bookshelf. Instead it is a book you want with you in your work area so you can reference it often while applying Scrum to deliver business value. This book is a great follow-on to those who have read my book Essential Scrum: A Practical Guide to the Most Popular Agile Process (Addison-Wesley Signature Series (Cohn)).

HASH(0x99cc6804) von 5 Sternen Frontline Experience shows.... 21. August 2013
Von Mr Nick Zdunic - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The title is so apt. If you wanted the cheat sheets to Scrum then this is it. It contains great summaries of the practices emphasizing the best ways forward and the pitfalls to avoid from working on the coalface. Combined with Kenny Rubin's book you have a a sound basis for your Scrum and Agile journey. But don't just stop there - use this basis to read further. You've still just scratched the surface. Read, Practice, Share, Practice, Practice... Live the ethos the book professes also and learn and learn. You'll never stop learning as an agile practitioner.
