eBook (PDF), 120 Pages

Price: $17.95
Scrum and Kanban are two flavours of Agile software development - two deceptively simple but surprisingly powerful approaches to software development. So how do they relate to each other? The purpose of this book is to clear up the fog, so you can figure out how Kanban and Scrum might be useful in your environment. Part I illustrates the similarities and differences between Kanban and Scrum, comparing for understanding, not for judgement. There is no such thing as a good or bad tool – just good or bad decisions about when and how to use which tool. This book includes: - Kanban and Scrum in a nutshell - Comparison of Kanban and Scrum and other Agile methods - Practical examples and pitfalls - Cartoons and diagrams illustrating day-to-day work - Detailed case study of a Kanban implementation within a Scrum organization Part II is a case study illustrating how a Scrum-based development organization implemented Kanban in their operations and support teams.

    This book is awesome (and I haven't even read the use cases in the second half yet). This is much more than a contrast between the two tools, it gives sufficient insight into the value of Kanban to enable the reader to envision how the tools could be used effectively in their own organization. I'm a Product Management Director in a Silicon Valley startup and I'm currently urging the VP of Engineering, Director of Engineering and Director of QA to read this book and adopt the tools. A must read! -- Update: I read the second half of the book. A bit thin on the use cases, but easy to skim through and reinforces the messages in the first half with respect to flexibility and limits. Still giving 5 stars as the first half is worth the price of the book
