Proven, 100% Practical Guidance for Making Scrum and Agile Work in Any Organization


This is the definitive, realistic, actionable guide to starting fast with Scrum and agile–and then succeeding over the long haul. Leading agile consultant and practitioner Mike Cohn presents detailed recommendations, powerful tips, and real-world case studies drawn from his unparalleled experience helping hundreds of software organizations make Scrum and agile work.


Succeeding with Agile is for pragmatic software professionals who want real answers to the most difficult challenges they face in implementing Scrum. Cohn covers every facet of the transition: getting started, helping individuals transition to new roles, structuring teams, scaling up, working with a distributed team, and finally, implementing effective metrics and continuous improvement.


Throughout, Cohn presents “Things to Try Now” sections based on his most successful advice. Complementary “Objection” sections reproduce typical conversations with those resisting change and offer practical guidance for addressing their concerns. Coverage includes

  • Practical ways to get started immediately–and “get good” fast
  • Overcoming individual resistance to the changes Scrum requires
  • Staffing Scrum projects and building effective teams
  • Establishing “improvement communities” of people who are passionate about driving change
  • Choosing which agile technical practices to use or experiment with
  • Leading self-organizing teams
  • Making the most of Scrum sprints, planning, and quality techniques
  • Scaling Scrum to distributed, multiteam projects
  • Using Scrum on projects with complex sequential processes or challenging compliance and governance requirements
  • Understanding Scrum’s impact on HR, facilities, and project management

Whether you've completed a few sprints or multiple agile projects and whatever your role–manager, developer, coach, ScrumMaster, product owner, analyst, team lead, or project lead–this book will help you succeed with your very next project. Then, it will help you go much further: It will help you transform your entire development organization.

3.0 van 5 sterren OK for Generalists and a Good Read - Not Practical 22 mei 2013
door Shawn Brock - Gepubliceerd op
Geverifieerde aankoop
I bought this book because of the suprisingly large number of positive reviews, but I was disappointed. I've read multiple blogs, books, and sermons about Agile and the common theme I've seen is they deal in generalities rather than specifics. This book falls into the same trap. While it does cover some of the road blocks and objections you will encounter implementing an Agile approach, it fails to give real, practical advice. That is, because it is general enough for most people, it really isn't specific enough to help most real people make real changes in real situations. Understand, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution, but I was hoping there would be more in-depth ideas on how to deal with real world problems.

For example, the author discusses requirements and estimating to some extent. But, he does not deep dive into any specifics about ideas for managing complex projects and the real need to forecast. He acknowledges challenges exist and says "you can't really know", which is true - but there has to be a way to arrive at some order of magnitude (and then trim scope/etc later on). Instead there is a note at the end of the section labeled "What to try now". It then offers a basic idea like, "stop using project management software and put your stories on notebook sheets on a scrum board." Ok - that's great, but it's one idea in a larger project, we cannot just pull the plug on one aspect of the project without thinking of the impact along the rest of the way. If we were on a small project being created from scratch - some of those ideas might work, but that's not realistic in most companies. So maybe that is meant to come from another book and this should not have been called "Succeeding With Agile", but rather it should have been called "Getting Started with Agile" - which is really what this book is.

Unfortunately for me, this book did not really shed much light on anything I had not heard or read in some other place. If you're looking for a primer to get you over the basic ideas, this is a solid book. But, if you're trying to execute anything but a small project from scratch with minimal dependencies, this is not going to help you "succeed with Agile".
5.0 van 5 sterren Making it all work 27 mei 2016

Doing my part of testing and coaching in agile context I found this book the best in making it all work. I mean with this that you can get lots of theory on the iconic books but this one goes to the meat and grit of everyday life in an Agile team. While most Agile books are targeted at the manager who has to make the transition, this one is for the team, the people. Just wish the testing section would have been larger as I could have used this book's approach to fill in where the Crispin/Gregory otherwise wonderful book "Agile Testing" falls short: how do you do it in the end (but admitting here and now that the later "More Agile Testing" is even better on this regard).

Long-time readers of Cohn's blog will see common themes raised but here they are expanded and integrated into a coherent package. Recommended to all who find the old "colors" book or similar to fall short in practical terms. You will find in this book the friendly, down-to-earth voice of Mike Cohn that one has met already in his blog.
5.0 van 5 sterren comprehensive and yet addresses the nuts and bolts of agile implementation 5 februari 2015
door Goucheman - Gepubliceerd op
Geverifieerde aankoop
Mike gets into the difficult leadership and organizational issues of implementing agile development and proposes practical approaches based on his extensive experience. Mike reveals how difficult it can be to implement agile thinking and execution. He illustrates the old adage that people want to see changes but they personally don't want to change. Mike spends a lot of pages recommending his solutions to these kinds of issues.

Anyone serious about implementing agile in their organization needs to read this book and draw up a realistic game plan which must involve executive commitment and excellent team leadership skills. It is true that agile is really a simple idea but very hard to do well because it really blows everything around it to bits. This books prepares you for this scenario if at all possible.

Mike's list of references at the end of his book is extensive and alone is worth the price of the book.

1.0 van 5 sterren I think it's a commercial for the author 27 januari 2016
door scott-gamer - Gepubliceerd op

I think this book is mostly a commercial for the author's services. It's littered with "case studies" that start "When I was the VP of engineering at..." or "Company X brought me in to consult..." and end with them being wildly successful because they embraced "Agile". No controlled experiments, I just have to take his word.
I find the sports-related terminology of "Agile" he uses demeaning and insulting. A "Sprint" works if your goal is to go a short distance as quickly as possible, with no reserves left, when someone else plots the course. For an intellectual pursuit lasting more than 5 seconds, you need an approach that relies on brains, not muscles. Calling my work a "Sprint" is like calling Rembrandt's work an exercise for his arm.

5.0 van 5 sterren The most practical guide to agile available 17 mei 2010
door Peter Borsella - Gepubliceerd op
Geverifieerde aankoop
Mike Cohn continues in his tradition of writing some of the most practical books available in the agile environment. His vast experience is evident in his approach to presenting the many questions practitioners and newcomers alike consider as they move ahead with agile practices. Without being dogmatic he provides the pros and cons of the issues at hand, helping to understand why one approach might be more desirable than another. As one example, in presenting the difference between feature teams and component teams, it would have been very easy (and overly simplistic) for Mike to indicate that feature teams are the way to go. Instead, he acknowledges that feature teams are strongly recommended, but that component team might be the right choice in some situations, and he explains what those situations might be.

This book also makes a great reference. Have a question about the role Human Resources play in an agile environment? Look it up in the index and get some pertinent information without a lot of wading through other non-related material.

The littering of "Objection" and "Things To Try Now" notes again add some very practical applications, both in dealing with common obstacles encountered while implementing agile practices, and also in recommending ways to move the cause forward without a lot of fuss.

One very minor style critique: while I appreciate the extensive use of supporting reference material, the manner in which these are inserted into the book can be just a bit tiresome, almost giving a feeling of reading a research paper. I'm not sure that there's any way around this, and there's no contest between getting the supporting references vs. losing some of that to attain a style objective: the extra detail wins hands down.

As an indication of the overall quality of "Succeeding With Agile" we have decided at Winnow Management to now use this book as our primary recommended reading to our clients. Great work, Mike!
