    Hi Pablo,

    The Scrum Guide is the most current and best starting place. Beyond that, Ken's "Agile Project Management with Scrum" is quite popular, but Scrum has changed quite a bit since it was published.

    As Alex said..THE SCRUM GUIDE is the no.1 resource. Follow Ken's blog (http://kenschwaber.wordpress.com/) and the discussion forum in this site.

    All The Best !!

    Agile Project Management is a great book, but is not in conform with the last version of Scrum Guide, I thins that is good to read but is analising with the changes out the new Scrum Guide,

    I personally like

    http://www.amazon.com/Scrum-Trenche...rum+and+xp
    http://www.amazon.com/Succeeding-Ag...with+agile
    http://www.amazon.com/Coaching-Agil...ssa+adkins

    Guess this are great books in general to get going with using Scrum in order to create better products in a given time frame.
    As for the assessment, it is the Scrum Guide and the Scrum Open assessment.

    Finally, a PSM training is a very good resource.

    Good Luck,
    Ralph

    I agree with Ralph that PSM training is a very good resource. I have found that most Agile books is very opiniated and doesn't really conform with Scrum Guide. It took me quite some time to realize this.

    Hi Pablo,

    While the Scrum Guide gives the rules, I think that the stories in Ken's "Agile Project Management with Scrum" is still very helpful to learn the mindset. It will help you understand it rather than just learning about the rules.

    When I think about my own journey to understand Scrum better, I have read a lot, and while this has been useful, many key insights have been when talking to others. Thinking about problems and real life situations, sharing experiences and ways of thinking.

    If you have someone to work with/discuss with, check out these study questions I prepared for people that wants a structured way to work through many aspects of Scrum: http://www.cedur.se/scrum-skills-series.html

    Good luck!

    Henrik

    Hi,

    I wanted to give a comprehensive list of books, articles and presentations about Scrum or in general about Agile concepts which will help to develop Scrum and Agile knowledge. This list is not for only PSMI but actually it is for people who want to know more about Scrum as a first goal rather than only getting the certificate. List is based on my personal taste and experience so it does not claim to be the most valuable set or whatever but for sure it will help much!

    Lists are alphabetically ordered.
    Books:
    A Practical Guide to Distributed Scrum
    Agile and Iterative Development A Manager's Guide
    Agile Project Management with Scrum (Ken Schwaber 2004)
    Agile Software Development (Alister Cockburn)
    Agile Software Development -Cooperative Game 2nd Edition
    Agile Estimating And Planning
    Pragmatic Agile Coaching
    Pragmatic Agile in a Flash
    Scrum And Xp From The Trenches
    The Agile Samurai

    Articles-Presentations (can be found on the net mostly):
    Evolving Agile (Scott Ambler)
    Essential Scrum (Tobias Mayer)
    Distributed Scrum Primer
    Do Better Scrum
    Grooming The Product Backlog
    How Self-organizing Groups Re-frame Conflict
    Lean and Agile Development in a Large Company
    Product Owners Manual
    The Role Of The Manager In Scrum
    Scrum Handbook (Jeff Sutherland)
    The Scrum Primer
    Self Organizing Agile Teams Grounded Theory (Thesis)
