Book Club Meeting – May, 26 2021
Topic: Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time
For our next book club event, we will be discussing Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time by Jeff Sutherland. Earn PDUs and get to know other members (and guests) of the Chapter.
If you’ve ever been startled by how fast the world is changing, Scrum is one of the reasons why. Productivity gains of as much as 1200% have been recorded, and there’s no more lucid – or compelling – explainer of Scrum and its bright promise than Jeff Sutherland, the man who put together the first Scrum team more than twenty years ago.
In this book you’ll journey to Scrum’s front lines where Jeff’s system of deep accountability, team interaction, and constant iterative improvement is, among other feats, bringing the FBI into the 21st century, perfecting the design of an affordable 140 mile per hour/100 mile per gallon car, helping NPR report fast-moving action in the Middle East, changing the way pharmacists interact with patients, reducing poverty in the Third World, and even helping people plan their weddings and accomplish weekend chores.
If you are interested in participating, please register for the event below and grab the book from your local library, bookstore, or online retailer.
