Scrum and XP from the Trenches – version 2.0

I finally found time to create version 2.0 of "Scrum and XP from the Trenches" :o)

No revolutionary changes. Just wanted to clarify some chapters, add some missing info, and add some new knowledge gained since the first version.

  • Added a chapter on planning poker.
  • Added a chapter on how the team decides which stories to include in a sprint & what the product owner can do to affect this.
  • Clarified how we use velocity metrics in sprint and release planning.
  • Added a chapter on what to do if the product owner doesn’t want to attend the sprint planning meeting.
  • Added a chapter describing why quality is non-negotiable.
  • Added a better picture of the design corner.
  • Added more details on how we do retrospectives, including a whiteboard photo.
  • Added more on offshoring and distributed teams.
  • Lots of minor corrections and clarifications.

Enjoy! And thanks for all the valuable feedback.
