Jeff helped to write the Agile Manifesto in 2001. He is the sole writer of the Scrum Guide , the "bible" of scrum. Today scrum is used by tens of thousends of software developers worldwide.
Jeff is a Distinguished Graduate of the United States Military Academy, a Top Gun of his USAF RF-4C Aircraft Commander class. He flew more then a 100 missions over North Vietnam. After 11 years in the militairy he became a doctor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Here he got involved in data collection and IT systems development. He experienced the difficulties of traditional software development and started experimenting with other, more agile approaches .
Together with John Scumniotales and Jeff McKenna, he developed a agile approach at Easel Corporation, and they were the first to refer to it using the single word Scrum. In 1995, Sutherland and Schwaber jointly presented a paper describing the Scrum methodology at the Business Object Design and Implementation Workshop held as part of Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages & Applications '95 (OOPSLA '95) in Austin, Texas, its first public presentation. Schwaber and Sutherland collaborated during the following years to merge the above writings, their experiences, and industry best practices into what is now known as Scrum.
