Our books


We wrote our first book, Collaboration Games in 2012 as an experiment. We found out we loved it, and people found the book really useful! We’ve been writing ever since. Our books are all written as easy to read, short books that can help you with something specific. Our workbook series is a step by step guide to help you learn something as an individual. Our coach’s guide series is a collection of workshop and training materials to help you plan and deliver training and workshops on a range of topics. Some of our books have been translated to Spanish and Russian.

I love the Coach’s Guide Series, it’s workshops are fantastic and they should be in every budding agile coach’s toolbox. They will not only help you understand agile principles better but you come will also come across as an awesome facilitator with in-depth understanding of your craft.

I was asked to do a full day training session on scrum and found this guide super helpful. This was my first training session and without this guide it could have been an epic fail….but thankfully it wasn’t!! I received great feedback on the presentation material (the slides are exciting and colourful) and my colleagues enjoyed the interactive format. This guide provides an excellent foundation to spread the word of Scrum in a way that people can grasp it!

Improve your productivity, help work to flow

With the word flow in the title I was afraid it could be written in that super boring geek language. It turned out not to be true at all! I thought I knew it all and couldn’t possibly find anything in the book to add to my productivity regime. How wrong I was.

Even as an experienced SM, it’s great to revisit these principles. I loved the use of “impediment words” and practical ways to investigate and solve impediments. Well done, Growing Agile – I didn’t expect anything less!
