[quote author = "Dirk Graber, founder and managing director of Mister Spex GmbH") "At Mister Spex we introduced Scrum a good while ago. Thus we are familiar with the processes of change and new challenges facing executives, human resources departments and in fact all employees, as described in this book. In my view it is important to work with Scrum in a holistic way, and to dare to throw over board conventional ways of thinking. This book really helped me to do so."
"The book "Erfolgreich mit Scrum – Einflussfaktor Personalmanagement“ (Success with Scrum - The Influential Factor of Personnel Management) fills in a gap in the organization of companies trying to gradually convert to Scrum. Projects that use Scrum are more dependent on those completing the project than in the past. What is more important than finding suitable employees? Gloger and Häusling use their impressive and extensive experience to show us how to do this. A wonderful book - essential and informative."
