Summary

Organize your family life and your workplace with this professional project management philosophy

If you’ve ever Googled anything related to planning and managing projects, you’re sure to have seen the words “scrum” and “agile”. And if you’ve been browsing job offers recently, you’ve probably noticed how many companies are looking for “scrum masters”.   

So…what is scrum, who is a scrum master, and why should you care? Well, project management is literally everywhere even if you don’t notice it. Your kitchen renovation is a project, your wedding is a project, even your Christmas shopping is a project - any set of actions that has a specific goal is a project. Unfortunately, project management isn’t taught at schools, and that’s why so many people have to hire a project management pro like a wedding organizer. 

Scrum is a framework of so-called agile project management that’s particularly popular in software development and tech in general. In agile project management, the entire project isn’t planned out in advance: the teams plan a sprint (a few weeks of work), then review their work and plan the next sprint. This makes planning much simpler, more flexible, and more open to change. OK, you think, this sounds nice, but what exactly does all this mean? Don't worry - this book will explain everything in a beginner-friendly, practical way.   

Here’s what you’ll learn: 

  • The surprising ways in which scrum can revolutionize your personal life - including parenting (spoiler: scrum can greatly reduce parental shouting!) 
  • The practical use of scrum techniques to improve group communication and teamwork 
  • How to implement scrum in the workplace to make customers happier 
  • Everything you need to know about each phase of a scrum project 
  • And much more! 

As you see, scrum is not just for companies that develop software. Anyone can use scrum to greatly improve their daily routines and personal life - you can do it, too! Learn the art of managing projects like a pro.

Ugh, just can't listen to the robotic voice

The voice, within minutes to me, just becomes a jumble of disjointed words. For me, there is no rhythm, no life to it, and the meaning behind the words is lost.

Wrong audio track???

Every chapter starts with Scrum related stuff, but 30 seconds into EACH chapter, the same speaker starts to talk about BLOCKCHAIN stuff? I think this is some kind of prank, or if its a bug, its really weird because its the exact same voice narrating both different kinds of content.

Wrong audio

Blockchain?! This is the wrong audio. It’s 1 min of scrum per chapter & goes into blockchain.

Worst book ever

The book starts with mentioning scrum for a minute - then talking about blockchain. This continues in each of the following chapters: ½ a minute of scrum then blockchain talk. Must be some kind of con. Also - most of the (many) positive reviews seem to be fabricated.

Content Error- Mixed Matched Book

Narrator jumps from SCRUM content to Blockchain content. Sounds like two books scrambled together into one incoherent book.
