I have been excited about Scrum since I first learned of it. I find Scrum concepts and language working their way into my projects at every opportunity. This is the first of a series of posts about scrum - each will contain a growing list of references (with links) for further study.
This first Scrum post introduces the Scrum Guide (new July 2011 version) and embeds a nice 8 minute video that introduces the concepts.
The Scrum guide is a fast read (17 pages) that explains the Scrum process framework. I highly recommend that every IT PM read and become familiar with this material. Find a link in the Scrum References list below.
Here is the video - watch it often :)

Note that the Scrum Guide is revised as of July 2011 - this link is to the current version
