The Scrum Fieldbook 

Based on years of work in the field with scores of companies including Bosch, 3M, Schlumberger, and Saab, The Scrum Fieldbook delivers a hands-on, practical approach for successfully implementing the Scrum framework in any domain.

In The Scrum Fieldbook, JJ draws on his firm’s extensive experience to take 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 nonprofits in Africa, from home renovation contractors in Minnesota to gas exploration companies in South America, from building fighter planes in Sweden to accelerating US Navy special forces teams in regions of the world we can’t mention.

"The Scrum Fieldbook will expand the adoption of Scrum, enhance anyone’s usage of the approach, and unleash the agile potential in all of us. This no-nonsense guide reveals practical applications of Scrum in an inspiring range of real-life experiences. J.J. strips away jargon to show how the world of business really works and why Scrum makes it work far better."

Darrell Rigby, Partner, Bain & Company

"Scrum is the way high tech companies have worked for decades. In The Scrum Fieldbook, JJ Sutherland shows how the rest of corporate America is implementing Scrum to increase productivity and achieve results"

Verne Harnish, Founder Entrepreneurs’ Organization and author of Scaling Up 

"Scrum creates both business value and happiness for the people involved. This framework is the key enabler for knowledge creating companies, and nurtures sustainable innovations in the global market and in society."

Prof. Ikujiro Nonaka, Hitotsubashi University

“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.”

Nathaniel Davis, CEO & Executive Product Owner, Drinkworks

“Simply put, Scrum transformed our business. I highly recommend The Scrum Fieldbook to every company that wants to make it to the next level!”

Brian Fox, President & Founder, Confirmation

“Four years ago, a few of us a 3M HIS took the challenge to implement Scrum to solve an acute business problem. Little did I know that Scrum was destined to be the antidote for all kinds of ills: mistrust, silos, bureaucracy, lack of community and belonging . . . Every Takeaway in the Scrum Fieldbook -- and I mean every one --was like reliving our journey. This is the way the good people in our world have made life for all of us better.”

 David Frazee, Director, Corporate Research Systems Lab, 3M
