Construction Scrum: How to Deliver Projects Easier, Better, and Faster is the first practical guide for construction professionals to implement the Scrum framework in the construction industry.
The book is organized into three parts:
There are so many problems in the industry. It's hard to deliver on time and budget without the heroics of extreme personal sacrifice using traditional project management approaches. I wrote this book to share my experiences, failures, and improved professional growth due to adopting Scrum. I want all designers and builders across the supply chain, no matter what trade they practice, to enjoy easier, better, and faster project delivery. Everyone wins working together.
If you're a project manager, superintendent, project team member, field leader, architect, engineer, or executive in the construction industry, this book is for YOU. It provides detailed instructions and stories based on real people's experience implementing Scrum so that projects are easier and faster!
The construction industry is complex, and I had to train my entire career to write this book. I worked in traditional project management roles, including office, on-site, and project support roles in design-bid-build hard bid jobs to highly collaborative contract projects. I got my foundation in Lean Manufacturing principles and methods learning from the likes of W. Edwards Deming, Jim Womack, John Shook, and Katie Anderson. I then experimented with Scrum via the application of Scrum: The art of doing twice the work in half the time by Jeff and JJ Sutherland.
I trained thousands of design and construction professionals before being asked to become a Registered Scrum Trainer™ (RST) building upon my Scrum Master training and practice with projects across the world. These experiences and continued education allowed me to help people overcome challenges with practical Scrum implementation in numerous scenarios.
I want people to have fun, enjoy what they do, and feel proud of it. With Scrum, anyone can pick up this framework to regain control over their work and grow in ways that may otherwise be difficult or impossible for them. We need your help to improve the construction industry with the Construction Scrum book. The media resources are here to inspire action. Please make space for you to experiment like I did and join our growing community of Agile builders. Our passion and combined efforts will take over any obstacles standing between us and success.
The Easier, Better, for Construction Show allows people to make building easier and better share how. Construction is complex and challenging enough. Guests positively build people, processes, and the building business. Felipe is committed to those working to make our industry better.
