Dr Jeff Sutherland

CEO / Frequency Research

Jeff Sutherland, while known as the inventor and Co-Creator of Scrum,  has spent more time in medical research than he has doing Scrum. He started his career as a fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force where he achieved Top Gun status in 1967 and flew 100 combat missions over North Vietnam.

After 11 years as a pilot, he joined the faculty of the University of Colorado Medical School where he received his Doctoral degree. As Asst. Prof.of Radiology, Biometrics, and Preventive Medicine he co-founded the Center for Vitamins and Cancer Research under the sponsorship of Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling. For eight years was the Principle Investigator of a National Cancer Center research grant that ran all IT programs and research for the Colorado Regional Cancer Center. Sutherland continued his medical research in his own laboratory after leaving the medical school to bring his computer technology expertise to industry.

In 1983 he joined a banking company that operated 150 banks throughout North America where he was VP of Advanced Systems and General Manager of their ATM Business Unit. Noticing that waterfall processes at the bank were not working, he implemented the first prototype of Scrum for organizational transformation of a business unit.

He has been VP of Engineering and CTO or CEO of eleven software companies. In the first four companies he prototyped Scrum and in the fifth company created Scrum as we now see it used in 74% of Agile software companies in over 100 countries. At the same time he has continued his medical research focusing on electronic medicine or the use of frequency modalities for healing purposes.

In 2012, at the request of researchers working with frequency approaches to improving health, he created the Frequency Research Foundation to share his extensive database of frequency data with partners and subscribers worldwide. Sutherland believes the accelerating global transformation to digital products and services will eventually disrupt the healthcare industry.
