Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time

Scrum The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time

If you are looking to learn about the history of Scrum and the reason behind why the practices and approaches work, check out Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time by Jeff Sutherland and J.J. Sutherland.

I got a chance to be a part of a rather small event where Jeff discussed this book. He shared many of the stories from this book, and he talked about the impacts he has seen on all types of organizations including schools, hospitals, and research institutes that leverage Scrum to manage delivering day-to-day.

I definitely recommend giving this a read — all leaders working with Scrum teams should give this book a read.

My career journey has had me wearing many hats ranging from Systems Analyst to Programmer to IT Manager to Programmer to Director. Today, I work as a coach and instructor to the leadership and team members of organizations on their agility journey. I'm constantly practicing to be a good learner, aspiring to be an inspiring leader, and I'm constantly walking the line between pragmatism and conviction when it comes to the application of lean and agile principles and practices.

Matt’s purpose is simple, “I believe in working with teams to help them get better, learn, and be successful in building stuff while having fun.”

At the end of the day, Matt believes in integrity, hard work, curiosity, people, and faith.
