When people say "Agile development" they are usually talking about releasing value in small, frequent increments. But to get there, a team must gradually build the habits, and establish the proper culture that will create a cadence of continuous value delivery through inspection and adaptation.
There are tons of Agile frameworks out there. Some are built for small teams, some for big enterprises with thousands of employees. However, one of the most well established frameworks is undoubtedly Scrum. Scrum has gained tremendous momentum during the last few decades, as one of the easiest frameworks to begin with.
This book is not the Scrum Guide and is not starting from scratch. We are making the assumption that the reader has some experience and understanding of the Scrum framework. In this book, we'll remind the core Scrum concepts and focus on how Scrum can be applied for remote teams.
