Based on five years of work in the field with scores of companies like Bosch, 3M, Schlumberger, and Rio Tinto, The Scrum Fieldbook delivers a hands on, practical approach to implementing the Scrum framework in companies and organizations in any domain.
What is Scrum? Scrum is nothing less than the secret weapon behind the success of companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Apple, which have reshaped the world through incredibly fast innovation, laser focus on customers, and continuous improvement practices. In J.J. Sutherland's first book, the national bestseller Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time, co-authored with his father, Jeff, he laid out the Scrum framework used by almost all of today's leading technology companies.
In recent years, the Scrum framework has exploded across the corporate world, far beyond technology companies and IT. J.J. and his team at Scrum Inc. have driven dramatically improved performance for global oil and gas firms, banks, utilities, medical device manufacturers, mining giants, and firms on the cutting edge of genetic science. In The Scrum Fieldbook, he draws on his firm's extensive experience in the field to take leaders, managers, and employees deeper into the specific challenges and new opportunities organizations face in an Agile transformation. He shows how the simple Scrum framework can be successfully applied to any situation, and in every industry, from automobile manufacturers in the US and Europe, to nonprofits in Africa, from home renovation contractors in Minnesota to gas exploration companies in South America, from building fighter planes in Sweden to accelerating US Navy special forces teams in regions of the world we can't mention.
