SCRUM: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time
by Jeff & J. J. Sutherland
There are surely better SCRUM books to buy (but this one was recommended by me by my pal and co-worker James). The author, CEO of Scrum, Inc. (it’s his story, co-authored with his son), is a bit self-congratulatory, and his cheerleading for SCRUM often comes across like he’s plugging a miracle weight loss regimen. That said, it did get me excited about some scrummy ideas, and inspire me to try to put some into practice. My job is allegedly going to try to tackle its next project in an “agile” manner. Ha. We’ll see how that goes.
