About the Author:

Dr Jeff Sutherland is the creator of Scrum and was a signer of the Agile Manifesto, which marked the start of the Agile movement. A graduate of West Point, he began his career as a fighter pilot in the US Air Force, and went on to join the faculty at the University of Colorado Medical School. Dr. Sutherland has served as VP of Engineering or CTO at 11 software companies, managing the last seven entirely using Scrum, and achieving industry-leading, hyper-productive results. He is currently the CEO of Scrum, Inc., the Chairman of the Scrum Foundation, and Senior Advisor to OpenView Venture Partners, where he is Agile coach for venture-funded companies.

Review:

"Full of engaging stories and real-world examples. The project management method known as Scrum may be the most widely deployed productivity tool among high-tech companies. On a mission to put this tool into the hands of the broader business world for the first time, Jeff Sutherland succeeds brilliantly." Eric Ries, New York Times bestselling author of The Lean Startup "Required reading." The Times (Book of the Week) "Engaging, persuasive and extremely practical...Scrum provides a simple framework for solving what seem like intractable and complicated work problems. It's hard to make forward progress when you can't see your impediments clearly. Sutherland offers a lens to remedy that. Amazingly, this book will not only make your life at work and home easier, but also, better and happier." Shawn Achor, New York Times bestselling author of Before Happiness and The Happiness Advantage "This book contains immense practical value that could be transformative for your company. If you have a project that requires people to accomplish, your first act should be to read and be guided by Scrum." Stephen Lundin, New York Times bestselling author of Fish: A Remarkable Way to Boost Morale and Improve Performance "Scrum is mandatory reading for any leader, whether they're leading troops on the battlefield or in the marketplace. The challenges of today's world don't permit the luxury of slow, inefficient work. Success requires tremendous speed, enormous productivity, and an unwavering commitment to achieving results. In other words success requires Scrum." General Barry McCaffrey
