The question is how do you make things twice as fast, in half the time with better quality? For years, the answer in software has been Scrum. Project after project, whether it’s a new app, running the world’s largest bookstore, or the FBI’s criminal case system, the Scrum methodology has proven to bring costs down, accelerate delivery, and bring higher quality. Software is one thing, but how do you do it with stuff? Physical things. How do you manufacture a car, or a printer, or a medical device using Scrum?
Scrum Inc. is proud to announce that they’ve figured it out. Joe Justice, the founder of WIKISPEED, has joined the Scrum Inc. team to help deliver Agile results to manufacturing companies. “Team WIKISPEED can build a car in a matter of hours,” says Joe Justice. “We use Scrum to make that happen. By joining the team at Scrum Inc. I think we can take that to the world. Even more awesome, we can teach you how to do it.”
“Joe has broken new ground using Scrum in manufacturing,” says Dr. Jeff Sutherland, the inventor of Scrum and the CEO of Scrum Inc. “Working together we can leverage our insight into leadership, management, and the Scrum process to fundamentally change how things are made.”
Joe has been featured on the Discovery Channel, profiled by Forbes as well as reported on by countless media outlets in the United States and Europe. Joe is available for interviews and a Wikispeed car build party available for recording. Please contact Scrum Inc. for details.
Scrum Inc. and Joe Justice will be holding our first build party at Agile DC on October 8th in Washington, DC. Anyone wanting to participate will be able to help build a car using Scrum, in just a few hours. Joe will use this hands-on work to illustrate how Agile principles can be embedded in a manufacturing process to make more innovative, cheaper, and customer-centric products. Over the next few months we will be holding workshops at companies large and small across the country and around the globe, teaching people how to use these techniques in their own shops.
