Driving Value with Sprint Goals (Addison-Wesley)
Wednesday, 25 October 2023

Subtitled "Humble Plans, Exceptional Results", this book looks at the use of Sprint goals to get the whole Scrum team behind clear goals that deliver real value (outcomes)--not just more features (output). Sprint Goals are your most powerful tool for achieving this alignment, but many teams avoid, misuse, or struggle with them. Maarten Dalmijn guides you through defining, creating, and executing on Sprint Goals that deliver outstanding value to customers and the business.
