The Bradley Bug Chart was referenced in an awesome new Scrum Book that is now on the market.

Background

I got an email from this guy named Rich one day who wanted to talk by phone and ask me some questions about the Bradley Bug Chart. A great collaboration ensued, and I incorporated some of his suggestions into my chart. A couple of weeks later, he asked me to review Chapter 1 of this book he was writing. I have some of the highest standards around, and I'm not easily impressed, but that first chapter was extraordinary! Through that one chapter, and the conversations with Rich, I realized this guy knew Scrum inside and out. I then reviewed and commented on a few more chapters. I get asked to do unpaid reviews often, but I only spend my time on things that I think are excellent for the Agile community. I've spent some time reviewing another book that hasn't been published yet, and it too, is a great one for the industry in my opinion. More on that one when it gets published.


The Bradley Bug Chart Gets Called Out

A little while later, Rich asked me if he could refer to my Bradley Bug Chart in his book(see page 277), in a section on how to handle bugs in Scrum. I was ecstatic, in part just having my work get recognition, but it was also recognition from someone I highly respected myself. It was great. I also re-wrote some of the praise that I gave Rich on that Chapter 1 review as a quote for his book. Rich ended up quoting me a few times in other parts of the book, particularly in the chapter on "Continuous Improvement." I'm not trying to brag here, just sharing the satisfaction of seeing some of my hard work and learning as being recognized in the community.

About the Book

Here is the quote I wrote for his book:
  • "Finally a book about Scrum from the Development Team's point of view. Richard's description of the best and worst ways to implement Scrum is priceless. The first chapter alone is one of the best descriptions of 'Scrum done well' that I've ever seen." -- Charles Bradley


I highly recommend his book for anyone working with Scrum and Microsoft Visual Studio/.Net technologies.

Small Caveat: Rich is and was a trainer with Scrum.org, and since our initial collaboration, Rich inspired me to become a trainer for Scrum.org as well. So, while I wasn't a trainer yet at the time of the above events, I wanted to mention that we are now both trainers for Scrum.org. I have no financial interests in his book, whatsoever, and my journey to become a Scrum.org trainer came after my review of his book. Thanks Rich!
