The definitive book on the Scrum methodology from its co-creator and the CEO of Scrum, Inc., Jeff Sutherland.
Scrum is the revolutionary approach to project management and team building that has helped to transform everything from software companies to the US military to healthcare in major American hospitals. In this major new book its originator, Jeff Sutherland, explains precisely and step by step how it operates - and how it can be made to work for anyone, anywhere. Take the FBI attempt to digitize its records, for example. As with so many software projects the first attempt failed, having taken four years and cost over $400 million.Then the FBI turned to Scrum, and just over a year later unveiled a functioning system that cost less than a tenth of the first project and employed a tenth of the staff. And it's not just grand projects that Scrum can help with.
Every organisation, whatever its size, constantly has to come to grips with delivering a product or service on time and on budget. Scrum shows you how. It explains how to define precisely what it is that you are seeking to achieve, how to set up the team to achieve it, and how to monitor progress until the project is successfully completed. Filled with practical examples drawn from all types and organisation it will make you rethink the fundamentals of successful management - and show you how to get things done however everyday or ambitious, however small or large your organisation.
'Full of engaging stories and real-world examples. The project management method known as Scrum may be the most widely deployed productivity tool among high-tech companies.

'Scrum is mandatory reading for any leader, whether they're leading troops on the battlefield or in the marketplace. The challenges of today's world don't permit the luxury of slow, inefficient work. Success requires tremendous speed, enormous productivity, and an unwavering commitment to achieving results. In other words, success requires Scrum.' - U.S. General BARRY McCAFFREY
'Jeff Sutherland is the master of creating high-performing teams. The subtitle of this book understates Scrum's impact. If you don't get three times the results in one-third the time, you aren't doing it right!' - SCOTT MAXWELL, Founder & Senior Managing Director, OpenView Venture Partners
'This deceptively simple system is the most powerful way I've seen to improve the effectiveness of any team. I started using it with my business and family halfway through reading the book.

Software in 30 Days is a must-read for all managers and business owners who use software in their organizations or in their products and want to stop the cycle of slow, expensive software development. Programmers will want to buy copies for their managers and their customers so they will know how to collaborate to get the best work possible.
Building a successful product usually involves teams of people, and many choose the Scrum approach to aid in creating products that deliver the highest possible value. Implementing Scrum gives teams a collection of powerful ideas they can assemble to fit their needs and meet their goals. The ninety-four patterns contained within are elaborated nuggets of insight into Scrumâ€™s building blocks, how they work, and how to use them. They offer novices a roadmap for starting from scratch, yet they help intermediate practitioners fine-tune or fortify their Scrum implementations. Experienced practitioners can use the patterns and supporting explanations to get a better understanding of how the parts of Scrum complement each other to solve common problems in product development.
The patterns are written in the well-known Alexandrian form, whose roots in architecture and design have enjoyed broad application in the software world. The form organizes each pattern so you can navigate directly to organizational design tradeoffs or jump to the solution or rationale that makes the solution work. The patterns flow together naturally through the context sections at their beginning and end.
Learn everything you need to know to master and implement Scrum one step at a timeâ€”the agile way.
"Repleto de histórias empolgantes e exemplos reais.

O mundo vem sofrendo um processo de mudança contínuo cada vez mais acelerado. Para quem acredita que deve haver uma maneira mais eficiente de fazer as coisas, Scrum é um livro instigante sobre o processo de liderança e gestão que está transformando a maneira como vivemos.
Instituições que adotaram o método Scrum já registraram ganhos de produtividade de até 1.200%. É por causa dele que a Amazon pode acrescentar um novo recurso em seu site todos os dias, que o Red River Army Depot, no Texas, consegue lançar utilitários blindados 39 vezes mais rápido e que o FBI finalmente criou um enorme banco de dados de rastreamento de terroristas.
Com base em insights de artes marciais, tomadas de decisão judicial, combate aéreo avançado, robótica e muitas outras disciplinas, o método Scrum é prático e fascinante.
Mas a razão mais importante para ler esse livro é que ele pode ajudar você a alcançar o que os outros consideram inatingível – seja inventando uma tecnologia pioneira, planejando um novo sistema educacional, viabilizando um caminho para ajudar os mais pobres ou mesmo estabelecendo os alicerces para a sua família prosperar.
