Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time
“Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time” by Jeff Sutherland is great for anybody who wants insights on how to be more productive anywhere in their life. The book covers such topics like the observation that multitasking is overrated or even counter productive. Doing the job right the first time and immediately addressing problems is very productive. I have seen far too many companies take short cuts up front only to cost many man hours later. These costs are easy to bury and bad managers rely on this fact to get away with this inefficient practice.
Doing the job right the first time and immediately addressing problems is very productive. And a reminder that the 80 / 20 rule is almost always relevant.
While I’m not sure this book gives enough detail to actually implement the Scrum methodology, I do recommend this book for the many management tips.
