Agile Product Development for Success

In its third edition, Rafa's Scrum book is now finally available in English. For the time being, you can purchase the Kindle edition on Amazon worldwide. Or, if you are one of Rafa's students, you can download the book for free from this page.


The Book

Scrum challenges the prevailing notion that product development efforts should adhere to the structured, managed, and evaluated approach of Taylorism, typically applied to repetitive and predictable factory work. This framework advocates for continuous learning and frequent adaptation, which are crucial for organizations to thrive in the dynamic and ever-changing modern environment.

In this book, Rafael Sabbagh offers an in-depth exploration of Scrum, rooted in the agile values and principles that form its foundation, along with its accountabilities, artifacts, commitments, and events. Through the author's insights, good practices, and additional techniques, organizations can effectively adopt Scrum in their product development, enabling meaningful transformations of what is necessary.

Updated Edition

In this third edition, Rafael Sabbagh conducts a comprehensive revision of the content, aligning it with the most current version of the official Scrum guide and incorporating new developments and learnings that have emerged from the framework's practice in recent years. This edition also shifts a greater focus on products rather than projects and adds fun facts and a historical view of how Scrum has evolved over the years.
