Practical tips and tools from ten years of Agile.

I have been working to help teams and organisations adopt Agile ways of working for close to 10 years now, usually in the role of a Scrum Master or Agile Coach. During this time, I have had the privilege of working with a lot of great teams. Being exposed to a lot of different environments has been a brilliant learning experience, as each organisation is unique and therefore forces you to try new things and approaches in your efforts to support change.

This book is about sharing the tool kit I have developed during this time. Many of these tools were developed incrementally within teams I worked with, some literally taking years and exposure to a variety of organisations to reach their current state. My hope is to save you some of that time.
