Read or finish reading the following:

Agile Project Management with Scrum by Ken Schwaber.


The Scrum Guide  http://agileconsortium.pbworks.com/w/page/23740731/Scrum%20Guide


You are certainly welcome to read here (this wiki), at my blog Agile & Business (see http://www.leanagiletraining.com/blog/), and at a special Yahoo group called AgileBusiness (http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/AgileBusiness).  Please also contribute, even if only with questions.


We also particularly recommend:

ScrumDevelopment (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/scrumdevelopment)

LeanDevelopment (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/leandevelopment)

The Agile2014 Conference (http://agile2014.agilealliance.org/) is... next August.

The next ScrumGathering is in New Orleans in 2014.


See Agile Info, here: http://www.leanagiletraining.com/resources.html

There is a whole LOT of information on and "beneath" this page.  It includes: books, articles, blogs, LinkedIn groups, yahoo groups, "user groups", etc, etc.


You may download my short book, Joe's Agile Release Planning, by clicking there.  Please use the coupon code Charlotte to get it for free, until Feb 1, 2014.

Please give me some feedback.


Local Groups: You should join a "local" group.  I really recommend this.  It is an excellent way to learn.

Or you might start a local group or an "industry" group.


You should be aware of Agile-Carolinas in Charlotte.



Or, contact Cassandra Wagner and 'join' the group; it is free.

There are speakers or discussions at the monthly meetings.


You may also be interested in other Agile User Groups. Try:



If you are interested in PMI PDUs, that will depend on how much you were in class (and workshop).  Just tell Cassandra that you are interested (via email), and she will explain further.

We are not an REP, but obtaining the PDUs is still very easy.


Here are some other useful documents:

Joe's Unofficial Scrum Checklist


Favorite Scrum Mistakes


A list summarizing Scrum   This list is useful as a review. And maybe useful as a starting point for defining Scrum or Agile for your group.




Agile 2010 Scrum excel spreadsheet:




We place the highest value on taking action and getting real results.

Put what you think you know into action.  Now.

Find out what you don't know as well as what you thought you knew. 

Find out what you need to know the most. Now.

Learn more (for a bit). Act more.

Learn-Act.  Get into a tight cycle.  Like a PDCA cycle.


We want you to pursue success with Scrum with perseverance and aggressiveness, and at the same time patience.
