The Scrum Contract (Part 1)

The following is an extract from our book, Scrum: Novice to Ninja, written by M. David Green. Copies are sold in stores worldwide, or you can buy it in ebook form here.

For the first half of this book, we’ve talked about scrum in the abstract. We discussed what it is, and how it works. We’ve broken it down into its roles, rituals, and artifacts. But scrum isn’t just about the details. Scrum is about the people.

In the next section, we’re going to see scrum in action. We’re going to take a look at how web and mobile development teams work with the various features of scrum. And we’re going to start with the team we’ve already been introduced to.
