24 Jun #027 – Jeff Sutherland – Co-Creater of SCRUM. How agile are you?
Almost every software company in the Silicon Valley uses an agile development approach. Venture Capitalists would not invest into a company that is NOT using the agile approach.
At the foundation of this massive development that sweeps throughout the world, is a framework called SCRUM. And the Co-Founder is Jeff Sutherland.
It’s rare to have a guest on the Podcast who has had so much impact in the business world through the concepts he developed, has improved and is still teaching.
And, the approach also works in private situations like a family or in your personal life. But, whilst the concept is relatively straightforward, the implementation is hard. Therefore I put something special together which you can be part of. Check it out here.
Jeff’s book “SRUM- The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time” has sold more than 100,000 times. Get it here.
I am honoured and excited to have Jeff as a guest. The recording is a few months back but the content is of course current.

Jeff is the inventor and co-creator of Scrum. He is a West Point graduate, former fighter pilot, and cancer researcher, as well as, CTO of eleven different software companies. He launched the first Scrum team in 1993 and has shepherded its growth into almost every industry: finance, healthcare, higher education, and telecom.
