Eric Ries, New York Times bestselling author of The Lean Startup "Required reading." -- (Book of the Week) The Times "Engaging, persuasive and extremely practical...Scrum provides a simple framework for solving what seem like intractable and complicated work problems. It's hard to make forward progress when you can't see your impediments clearly. Sutherland offers a lens to remedy that. Amazingly, this book will not only make your life at work and home easier, but also, better and happier." Shawn Achor, New York Times bestselling author of Before Happiness and The Happiness Advantage "This book contains immense practical value that could be transformative for your company. If you have a project that requires people to accomplish, your first act should be to read and be guided by Scrum." Stephen Lundin, New York Times bestselling author of Fish: A Remarkable Way to Boost Morale and Improve Performance "Scrum is mandatory reading for any leader, whether they're leading troops on the battlefield or in the marketplace.

This book is for everyone who claim themselves to be Scrum experts to re-validate their expertise. Honestly, Jeff impressed me with the very first chapter " The Way the World Works is Broken". Really enjoyed through reading this book every chapter. I learnt a lot. I agree that Scrum if implemented in the right way as Jeff describes, will certainly helps to speed up the software development.
How many organizations out there can really sacrifice their old way of working and make drastic changes within themselves for a meaningful positive impact?
The "willingness to change" in many organizations is highly questionable. Is there something we can do about it ?
Overall, a good book if you are totally new to Scrum. But if you know it a bit, then the book might not add much value.
