’’ سكرم هو عملية تكرارية و هو الإطار التدريجي لإدارة المشروع غالبا ما ينظر إليها في مجال تطوير البرمجيات، وهو نوع من هندسة البرمجيات‘‘

It's a short but perfect guide. Nothing extra.

This was a very important book for me and changed the direction of my software company

Subsequently I ended up initiating some videos to be produced and they are played to each new hire who joins SSW. They are true to the book and were built with the requirement (should I say 'Acceptance Criteria') to use the *exact* words in the book

Here are some of the videos:

I have read this Guide several times in the past few months (it’s only about 20 pages). Yet, I still feel completely unprepared for my Scrum Master certification exam.
It is a nice, high-level overview of the Scrum Framework. But, is it going to prepare me to be the Scrum Grand-Master at my scrum of scrums? Not really.
I find myself regularly consuming guidance from the Agile Alliance website ( This helps supplement what I was able to glean from the Scrum Guide.

Short (less than 20 pages), easy to understand. It contains mostly values and principles, so that whenever you are in a middle of a situation, you can always deduce what to do based on those values and principles. Scrum is indeed easy to understand but difficult to master and properly practice.

Remember to read blog posts for explanations for some of the updates compare to previous versions.
Evan Wondrasek
At 20-something pages, it's short and sweet, and is a good reminder that ultimately, scrum is a very minimal framework. I read the updated version as of July 2016. This is worth rereading every year as a refresher.

Not a very detailed guide. But it has everything when it comes to understanding scrum. Each and every line of the scrum guide is important if you are planning to attempt PSM exam. If you are planning to implement scrum in your project then this is the go to guide.

Good guide for those who want to know scrum in 10 minutes.

This is a short book detailing the work flow on scrum. It doesn't have a lot of examples or details (as expected from a 19 page book ), but still delivers the important details of a scrum workflow.

Guia básico oficial e essencial do Scrum, apresentando-o como realmente, é um framework de processo ágil. Apresenta os conceitos mais essenciais de forma simples porém muitíssimo reduzida. Bom para utilizar como referência pois é sucinto, mas não traz casos de exemplos, nem mesmo descrição de várias práticas comumente adotadas juntamente com o scrum, como o dashboard, user stories, story points, dinâmicas para as reuniões, métricas e análise dos resultados. Nem mesmo para a prova de certificação ...more

I downloaded this book and found not at all helpful for my work. This is just like a Summary. I am highly upset. It seems I wasted my time to download and read. I need a book with more details. Where all the concepts are well defined. Any one in this group please help me to select right book on SCRUM.

Una buena guía, que puede leerse online, para entender los conceptos esenciales del Scrum. Se mantiene actualizada por los creadores de la metodología Scrum, Ken Schwaber y Jeff Sutherland. Muy recomendable para las personas interesadas en técnicas ágiles de desarrollo que quieran hacerse una idea rápida de estos temas.

If you goal is to get the PSM 1 exam, read the Scrum Guide.
Then read it again.
And again.
Every sentence is relevant.

Nice no-bullshit guide on the main principles underlying SCRUM.
Not repetitive, clear, no excessivily detail.
Great if you are new to SCRUM and want to know what it is about.
It takes about 15 minutes to read, if you are diligent about it.

دليل مميز للتعرف على طريقة scrum في تطوير البرمجيات ومكوناتها والمصطلحات المستخدمة بها .. اتمنى ان اجد دورات تدريبة في وطننا العربي عنها ستفيد كل الأطراف كثير .. اتذكر ان هناك جمعية تسمى جمعية رجال الأعمال بالاسكندرية كانت تتبنى عقد مجموعة من الفاعليات المتعلقة بصناعة البرمجيات وقد تحدثوا عن طريقة لادارة المشاريع البرمجية .. أدعوهم للاستمرار في هذا الجهد الرائع لنشر المعرفة

The essential scrum in 30 pages or so, written by the fathers of Scrum. This is a must read and reflect for any IT professional that works in a company that adopted and uses scrum. This is also the main foundation for anyone willing to take the PSM certtification.

A short and must read guide for Agile newcomers that puts you on the track and introduces the agile philosophy well.

I've read this edition, listened to the audio book, and read the Arabic translation as well which I liked too.

This is a high level guide to the Scrum project management philosophy. I enjoyed the book and look forward to putting some of these techniques into practice, but I wonder if it translates to the real world the same way as described.
