Great ScrumMaster and Agile Leader Books

The Great ScrumMaster Book

I’m the author of The Great ScrumMaster: ScrumMasterWay book which is a guidebook for all ScrumMasters, Agile coaches and leaders who want to transform their organizations.

Zuzi Sochova, author of the Great ScrumMaster: #ScrumMasterWay bookThe book is intended to give you a reference to general concepts which every ScrumMaster should understand and point you towards resources which may help you in resolving difficult situations.

The Agile Leader Book

My second book The Agile Leader: Leveraging the Power of Influence is looking at organizational agility and is focusing on the shift required from the leaders. Through practical exercises and assessments, you learn how to unleash your potential, become a better catalyst and community builder, sensibly apply transparency, improve functions from HR to finance, and guide entire organizations toward greater agility.

In today’s complex, fast-changing, and unpredictable world, radically agile organizations thrive when they combine strong local autonomy with deeply shared goals. Leadership is a key factor―individuals who welcome complexity and know how to leverage influence, culture, and organizational design to align widely distributed teams are integral to success.
