Jeff Sutherland is one of the founding fathers of agile approaches. Over two decades ago, he co-created the agile project management method know as Scrum. Initially developed to successfully complete IT projects, it is now used in all types of complex projects. But as often happens, broad dissemination of the methodology may have ended up eroding some of its founding principles over time. It is not rare to see companies applying Scrum methodology without fully understanding all of the ins and outs. In this book, Jeff Sutherland returns to the philosophy underlying the method. He explains the principles and scientific findings underpinning its effectiveness, and describes how to adopt the methodology to reach potentially spectacular results.

An invaluable book to understand, beyond the purely methodological aspects, the key success factors of agile methods and their implications for company culture.
