Business Game Changers – Why are there Over 500,000 Active Job Openings for Scrum and Agile Experts?

This week I talk with Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the co-founder of Scrum and Agile. He provides insight into why the business world loves to hire people who have Scrum and Agile experience. We also discuss his best selling book “SCRUM: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time”.

Scrum and Agile is being used by over 80% of all fortune 1000 companies and currently, there are over 500,000 active job openings for people with scrum and agile experience.

Dr. Jeff Sutherland has impressive experience including being a top gun airline pilot, a medical doctor, a co-founder of the Center for Vitamins and Cancer Research, Principle Investigator of a National Cancer Center, and CTO or CEO of eleven software companies.
