商品描述

We live in a world that is broken. For those who believe that there must be a more efficient way for people to get things done, here from Scrum pioneer Jeff Sutherland is a brilliantly discursive, thought-provoking book about the management process that is changing the way we live.
 
In the future, historians may look back on human progress and draw a sharp line designating “before Scrum” and “after Scrum.”  Scrum is that ground-breaking.  It already drives most of the world’s top technology companies.  And now it’s starting to spread to every domain where people wrestle with complex projects.
 
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.
 
The thorny problem Jeff began tackling back then boils down to this: people are spectacularly bad at doing things quickly and efficiently. Best laid plans go up in smoke. Teams often work at cross purposes to each other. And when the pressure rises, unhappiness soars. Drawing on his experience as a West Point-educated fighter pilot, biometrics expert, early innovator of ATM technology, and V.P. of engineering or CTO at eleven different technology companies, Jeff began challenging those dysfunctional realities, looking  for solutions that would have global impact.
 
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.
 
Woven with insights from martial arts, judicial decision making, advanced aerial combat, robotics, and many other disciplines, Scrum is consistently riveting. But the most important reason to read this book is that it may just help you achieve what others consider unachievable – whether it be inventing a trailblazing technology, devising a new system of education, pioneering a way to feed the hungry, or, closer to home, a building a foundation for your family to thrive and prosper.

商品描述(中文翻譯)

我們生活在一個破碎的世界中。對於那些相信人們應該有更有效率的方式完成事情的人來說,Scrum的先驅Jeff Sutherland在這本引人深思的書中談到了一種改變我們生活方式的管理流程。

未來,歷史學家可能會回顧人類的進步,並劃出一條鮮明的線,將“Scrum之前”和“Scrum之後”劃分開來。Scrum是具有突破性的。它已經在大多數世界頂尖科技公司中得到應用。現在,它開始在每個需要應對複雜項目的領域中擴散。

如果你曾經對世界變化的速度感到驚訝,Scrum就是其中之一的原因。已經記錄到高達1200%的生產力提升,而Jeff Sutherland是Scrum的首個團隊成員,他對Scrum及其光明前景的解釋更加清晰和引人入勝。

Jeff當初開始解決的棘手問題可以總結為:人們在快速高效地完成事情方面非常糟糕。最好的計劃化為煙消雲散。團隊常常互相背道而馳。當壓力上升時,不滿情緒也隨之升高。Jeff以他作為西點軍校訓練的戰鬥機飛行員、生物測量學專家、自動提款機技術的早期創新者以及在11家不同科技公司擔任工程副總裁或首席技術官的經驗,開始挑戰這些功能失調的現實,尋找將具有全球影響力的解決方案。

在這本書中,你將踏上Scrum的前線,Jeff的深度責任制、團隊互動和不斷迭代改進的系統,除了其他成就外,還將FBI帶入21世紀,完善一款每小時行駛140英里/每加侖耗油100英里的經濟實惠汽車的設計,幫助NPR報導中東的快速行動,改變藥劑師與患者的互動方式,減少第三世界的貧困,甚至幫助人們計劃婚禮和完成週末家務。

這本書融合了武術、司法決策、高級空中戰鬥、機器人技術和許多其他學科的見解,一直引人入勝。但閱讀這本書最重要的原因是,它可能會幫助你實現其他人認為不可實現的目標,無論是發明開創性的技術,設計新的教育體系,開創解決飢餓問題的方法,還是為你的家庭建立繁榮的基礎。
