Articles I've written

The Agile Alphabet
We all start our learning process from our own native-language alphabets. Similarly, I have attempted to create an Agile alphabet (in English) for helping new Agile enthusiasts begin their learning of the common vocabulary. This is not a bible or dictionary of Agile terms; it is a knowledge base. It can always be enhanced to achieve maximum satisfaction and an Agile match-up to the alphabet.

ITTOs of Agile Scrum Ceremonies
I am making an attempt here to map the Scrum model into ITTOs for anyone's understanding and easy implementation.

Open Secrets of Scrum
