One month ago I enthusiastically anticipated the book release of TMap Next in Scrum. After reading the book I walked away disappointed and wondering what the fuss was all about.
One third of the book consists of the description of Agile, Scrum and all of its facets. Helpful for someone who does not know anything about the subject matter but in my opinion it is illustrative that a fair portion of this book is sheer repetition of what can be read about more extensively in other books.
The combination of TMap and Scrum is sensibly explained. Yet, much of what is said is about the “what” and not about the “how”. For instance, the authors should have explained how to avoid the pitfalls they describe. Secondly, most of the observations are quite obvious.
So was the content worthy of publishing in a book? In my humble opinion: no.
