This is a podcast about results, getting things done. How to move past uncertainty and define the future.

In this episode I talk with J.J. Sutherland. He is the CEO of Scrum Inc and is also the co-author of Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time, written with his father, Jeff Sutherland, the co-creator of Scrum. His newest book The Scrum Fieldbook, A Master Class on Accelerating Performance, Getting Results, and Defining the Future, is the topic of this show.

For those of you unfamiliar with the term Scrum, it's a framework originally used as a faster, more effective way to create software in the tech industry. The Scrum process is now being used successfully in general business practice all over the world in companies of all types, outside of pure tech.

This chat is in part a discovery process as to why that is.

J.J. says Scrum is the art of changing the possible or what is possible. And I think after listening to this episode, you might join him in that belief.

Some great advice here on not only what Scrum really is or how it works but J.J offers some great insights on teamwork, why projects fail, how to use failure and fear as catalysts and how Scrum can be applied anywhere.

Be prepared to be motivated to get stuff done after listening.

Enjoy!
