To scrum or not to scrum? To succeed or to fail?


Scrum – halving your work and gaining more value

How many of you have heard of Scrum? No, not the rugby scrum but yes that’s where they got the name from. I’m talking about the agile product development process, scrum.

So, I’m reading the book, Scrum: The Art of doing twice the work in half the time by Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of scrum. And wow, my mind is blown. I had no idea a. how much we as human beings waste in terms of productivity, even well established institutions filled with some pretty smart people. And b. how relatively easy it is to build some pretty fantastic products if you use the systems.

I won’t bore you with the benefits or intricacies of scrum, but what I will suggest is that you read this book.  If you are an entrepreneur who is looking to grow your business or to produce high quality products / service quickly; or you’re an intrapreneur looking to improve your work space, check out scrum.

A great place to get this book for a good price and free delivery, is the book depository. Please note that this is an affiliate link.
