July 24 Waltham - Agile Boston Monthly Meeting
Scrum is used in all kinds of environments! One of the most exciting examples is Team WikiSpeed, which designed and built a 100 mile per gallon car in just three months. The team accomplished this amazing feat using "Extreme Manufacturing" - a set of practices that combine Scrum, XP, and modular design to deliver hyper-productivity in a manufacturing environment. This brings the Agile revolution full circle, where agile practices with roots in Toyota that formed the foundation of Scrum are transformed in the software world and injected back into auto manufacturing. Imagine a new car design process where every week the latest design can be driven off the lot!
At this event, Scrum co-creator Jeff Sutherland and WikiSpeed founder Joe Justice will discuss how you can implement test-driven hardware development within Scrum. Get ahead of your competition and learn how WikiSpeed developed component architecture and produced hardware in one week sprints.
About The Presenters:
Jeff Sutherland is the co-creator of Scrum and a leading expert on how the framework has evolved to meet the needs of today's business. The methodology he developed in 1993 and formalized in 1995 with Ken Schwaber has since been adopted by the vast majority of software development companies around the world.
Joe Justice founded and has grown WIKISPEED, a company building 100+ mpg, modular commuter cars using Agile process, to a multinational business in 18+ countries, and now applies Agile methodologies to reduce time-to-value in social good projects such as polio vaccine distribution and low-cost medical centers for developing communities. Joe Justice consults on behalf of SolutionsIQ to realize the benefits of Agile services in non-software-centered verticals such as scientific R&D, oil, entertainment, manufacturing, food service, hospitality, health care, transportation, government, merger management, and education.
