Solid pedagogical material.
When we think about Scrum, we think "post-it", "software" or "ceremonies". We picture a set of rigid rules that need to be enforced by a "Scrum Master". But what if using it in a different context could help us get to the bottom of it, understand its core principles?
This is the experiment I put in place in 2019 when the time had come for me to organise the biggest personal project of my life: my wedding. With the help of my wife and the Agile Manifesto, I stripped Scrum down and found the pieces that, once slightly rearranged, would allow me to use it outside of its comfort zone. By tilting the angle, I got to ask myself new questions and strengthen my practice of agility.
Whether you are new to Agile Methodologies or a kick-ass Scrum Master, dive with me into the core principles that make the building blocks of every Agile framework and learn to see Scrum in a new light.
If you aren’t planning a wedding, you’ll enjoy this book purely for its stories and how well you’ll see Scrum and the agile principles applied. Having introduced Scrum to over 30,000 people worldwide, I enjoy helping people see how Scrum applies in their world through stories of its use in other worlds. Seeing a wedding backlog, for example, will undoubtedly give you ideas for writing your product backlog whether you’re building a mobile game, a medical device, or anything in between.

Scrum Master Toolbox Podcast
"Julien wrote the book titled “How I Planned My Wedding with Scrum” to apply his knowledge of Scrum to the process of wedding planning. Scrum provided him with a sense of assurance, clarity, and familiarity with the tools he knew best. By deepening his understanding and applying Scrum principles, Julien found that it helped him feel more in control and provided clarity throughout the planning process. Furthermore, working as a team with his parents and family members reinforced the collaborative nature of Scrum."
