Scrum Resources

Since we’ve jumped on the Scrum bandwagon, I’ve been capturing Scrum related resources as I came across them and sharing them with my management peers and team. Well today I felt it was time I also share them with you… (Paying it forward and all that)

As I come across more I’ll try to update this post (as well as link to it off my main page so it’s easy to find in the future ;)

I hope these resources help you as much as they have helped me and my team…
