Millions of professionals use Scrum. Its the worlds #1 approach to agile software development. Even so, by some estimates, over 70% of Scrum adoptions fall flat. Developers find themselves using Zombie Scrum processes that look like Scrum, but are slow, lifeless, and joyless. Scrums just not working for them.

Zombie Scrum Survival Guide reveals why Scrum runs aground and shows how to supercharge your Scrum outcomes, while having a lot more fun along the way. Humourous, visual, and extremely relatable, it offers practical approaches, exercises, and tools for escaping Zombie Scrum. Even if youre surrounded by skeptics, this book will be the antidote to help you build more of what users need, ship faster, improve more continuously, interact more successfully in any team, and feel a whole lot better about what youre doing. Suddenly, one day soon, you'll remember: thats why we adopted Scrum in the first place!
