Scrum for Hardware
How to use Scrum to create complex and innovative products?
In this talk, you’ll see how to use Scrum to develop complex product composed by Software, Electronics, Mechanics, Engines, and Plastics. You'll hear the stories of the pioneer of Scrum for Hardware, from Wikispeed to the first Scrum for Hardware Gathering and the Agile Product Charter. The discussion will include how to produce physical products using the same Scrum methods that Agile software teams have benefited from for years, how to spark product and hardware innovation through iterative sprint cadence and the secrets of companies that have made the jump from Agile prototyping to true Agile manufacturing.
Extract from the Scrum for Hardware foreword: «This book is the first significant publication on the topic, the most complete and authoritative. If the Agile transformation of the Software industry has any parallels outside that field, and if the current client adoption rate is any indication, this book will be the reference for executives, shop floor managers, and team members globally» Joe Justice - Creator of Scrum for Hardware and eXtreme Manufacturing.
