How to start with Agile and Scrum

  1. Read Agile manifesto - http://agilemanifesto.org - and try to apply those principles to your context.
  2. Agile is a huge change. It's changing culture and mindset. It will not be that easy, so spend some time investigating if your reasons for agile adoption are good enough.
  3. Read my blogs http://soch.cz/blog (CZ) and http://agile-scrum.com or listen to my podcast #AgileWay and Jsme Agilni (CZ).
  4. Try it now. It's always good time to start.
  5. Neither Agile nor Scrum is a dogma. But don't give up too early. It's lot of work to make it stick.
  6. Learn more. Read books and aticles from the following section or check our additional courses and workshops.

Scrum and tools

Tools:

Sprint level:

  • Despite on Product backlog and tools you decided to use, Sprint backlog and sprint plan don't need any tool. Use paper cards instead.
  • If you are using any complex tool, never add task level there.
  • For distributed teams try scrumblr.ca

Don't forget to celebrate any success.
