Jeff Sutherland

Jeff Sutherland is creator of the Scrum, which is a framework for enabling business agility at scale across an entire organization. Well known for its application to software development, it is now used in other domains at GE, 3M, Toyota, Tesla, and other leading companies. Scrum is based off of the Agile Manifesto approach.

The agile approach was developed by Sutherland, John Scumniotales and Jeff McKenna while at Easel Corporation. The principle was based on a 1986 article by Hirotaka Takeuchi and Ikujiro Nonaka in the Harvard Business Review, and incorporates practices from a draft study published in Dr. Dobb’s Journal. It involves 30-day cycles of plan, build and monitor sprints.

In episode 1 we focused on time and task management and focused on the 4 Values of Project Management from the Agile Manifesto. The purpose was since artists are more project minded we probed into this subject matter so we could find out how creative people can tie those values into their daily work.

4 Values to Project Mgmt.

  1. Individuals & Interactions over Processes – People first
  2. Working “Software” over Comprehensive Documentation – Beta test before Tutorial created
  3. Customer Collaboration over contract negotiation – teams and customers should collaborate rather than establishing or updating a policies & procedure manual.
  4. Responding to Change Over Following a Plan – adapt when needed and often
