Building a car with principles for Scrum, Agile and Lean

Joe Justice presented the opening keynote at the Scrum Global Gathering in London. The topic was how Agile, Lean, and Scrum can fit manufacturing. More specifically he talked about the development of the SGT01 – a 100 mpg, four-seat commuter car with a mid-engine and rear-wheel drive. This is an interesting keynote in large part because it demonstrate the application of Scrum principles in a domain other than software.

I enjoyed the keynote presentation, but it left me wanting more. I wanted to know about the modular nature of the car. So, I visited the wikispeed home page and found this video of Joe talking about the modular nature of the car. This is a real car-geek talk with lots of jargon and industry specific terminology. I didn’t understand half of it, but I love every minute.
