Jeff Sutherland @ Scrum, Inc: A Pattern Language for Hyperproductivity Jeff Sutherland, the inventor of Scrum, is a charter member of the Scrum Patterns group. He is the author of most of these Scrum PLoP® patterns — patterns he teaches to get teams off to a good start, and to get great teams to a hyperproductive state:
How do you get started? (Stable Teams)
How do you successfully pull backlog items into a Sprint? (Yesterday's Weather)
How do you get stuff done? (Swarming: One-Piece Continuous Flow)
How do you deal with interruptions during the Sprint? (Illegitimus non Interruptus)
How do get defect free at the end of the Sprint? (Daily Clean Code)
How do you deal with surprises? (Emergency Procedure)
How do you ensure you continuously improve? (Scrumming the Scrum)
How do you get teams to have fun? (Happiness Metric)
How do you get hyperproductive? (Teams that finish early accelerate faster)
Jeff presented these at Agile 2013.
