I am aware that 1 hour of reading records for 1 pdu, but since my speed is not that fast. Please can anyone guide me max how many PDU, I can record in CCRS and in what sections of pmi triangle.

It would still be one PDU per hour but that would need to be a dedicated hour, not one in which you were multitasking :-)

You'd also need to have some evidence of your efforts - for example, notes you took while you were reading the book.

A book on Scrum is likely to be predominantly technical with a smattering of leadership so I'd allocate the PDUs across those two Talent Triangle legs.

I wouldn't dare challenge your opinions, Kiron, but I'm curious why you state that Scrum is predominantly technical, as opposed to (Servant) Leadership or Strategic and Business Management? As a framework, Scrum has very little technical information. Sutherland's book offers a few techniques and pictures, but mostly elaborates on the Scrum Guide and scrum theory.

On the other hand, when I report Scrum training to PMI, it usually wants to convert most of my PDUs to technical. I think that might sometimes be true, depending on the training event, but I don't think that should be our default.

If it is about the "mechanics" of the Scrum framework (e.g. Roles, Ceremonies, Artifacts), that is definitely technical knowledge but if it is about successfully implementing Scrum within a traditional context that would fall better under Leadership. A lot also depends on what types of roles the book is geared towards.

Also, you should find a way to claim twice the PDUs in half the time.
