NOTE: This is a "Special" combined North/South Meeting. We have JJ Sutherland speaking. JJ is the author "The Scrum Fieldbook" (released 10/1/19). JJ is also the son of Jeff Sutherland (co-creator of Scrum) - see bio. JJ will be remote, but very much LIVE to answer questions. Sorry, this meeting will NOT be repeated.
Description: The Scrum Fieldbook: A Master Class on Accelerating Performance, Getting Results, and Defining the Future
On October 1st, JJ Sutherland's hands-on, practical guide to excelling with Scrum is released. In The Scrum Fieldbook, JJ takes leaders, managers, and employees deeper into the specific challenges and new opportunities of an Agile world. He shows how the Scrum framework can be successfully applied to any situation, in any industry, from automobile manufacturers in the US and Europe to home renovation contractors in Minnesota to accelerating US Navy special forces teams in regions of the world we can’t mention.
“Essential for any leader, innovator, or potential disruptor who wants their company to learn how to get out of its own way. Through the compelling stories and data-driven insights, JJ reveals the patterns and anti-patterns that actually matter and provides a practical guide on how to implement Scrum@Scale. . . and unleash its potential to truly nudge the world.”
