This is my Gold Standard reading list for learning and practicing the Scrum Software Development Methodology. Not surprisingly, Scrum can be used for any kind of project, not just software development as it’s Lean Management framework was largely borrowed from Lean Manufacturing principles from Lean Six Sigma, TQM, Kanban, Kaizen and the Theory of Constraints.
