Jeff Sutherland, an accomplished ex-fighter pilot, and his co-author and son, war correspondent J.J. Sutherland, draw heavily on military analogies and metaphors throughout this engaging, entertaining manual on the agile project management method Scrum. They use vibrant examples, eye-popping statistics and simply worded instruction to provide compelling reasons and methods for adopting Scrum across industries, professions and geographies. This overview is not just for those who need hands-on teaching; if you’re familiar with the Scrum process and seek more evidence of its effectiveness, you will value this applicable manual. If you gain just 10% of what companies like SpaceX, Zappos and others achieved, you’ll be glad you read the Sutherlands’ overview – and implemented Scrum techniques in your life and work.
