Applying Agile Project Management Successfully

Roman’s first book, published in December 2007, provides a comprehensive yet concise guide to applying Scrum successfully. It’s full of practical tips to help the reader understand and implement Scrum. The book is written in German.

“I’ve known and worked with Roman for years with Scrum, so the book is full of practical advice. This book not only faithfully documents Scrum, it also provides a state of the art view of the most current thinking about using Scrum. This book is a solid addition to the compendium of books to aid the Scrum practitioner.”

Praise for the Book

I really love Roman’s book on Scrum–you can give it to anybody and he will understand the Scrum principles and can start to apply them.

− Andrea Heck

Roman explains everything that’s necessary to get started with Scrum. He explains the roles, the artifacts, and the events. In addition, he talks about the evolution of the product backlog, the role of long-term planning using release management, scaling, and establishing Scrum in organizations. After reading this book I felt well prepared for my first Scrum project.
