Newbies’ Guide to Scrum Project Management 101

nTask

Scrum” is a phenomenal subject – i.e. if you are familiar with it. As an Agile project manager, I have seen my fair share of so-called “Scrum Masters” and “Agile Experts” claiming to be masters of their craft.

The illusion of agility (what most Agile transformations end up delivering)
