There are several key topics covered including:
- Why SCRUM?
- Introduction to SCRUM
- Integration with traditional project management approaches such as Waterfall
- Organisational items, SCRUM of SCRUMs, integration with Matrix organisations, etc.
- Application of SCRUM to Defence, Six Sigma, Education, Service industries
For me, the integration with other approaches is of particular interest as I often mix different task management approaches. The authors also cover and explain the various SCRUM components and tools such as burndown charts, product/sprint backlog practices and team roles.
I wrote a more complete review at SCRUM Project Management Book Review
