Extreme Manufacturing (incl. CSM) with Joe Justice
Extreme Manufacturing is a set of technical practices and management principles to go from an idea to a product or service in the customers hands in less than 7 days. This involves Agile design, Agile manufacturing, Scrum teams, Kanban flow optimizations, Radical Management, Lean and TPS, rapid prototyping tools and practices, Scrum vendor practices, and Extreme Programing technical practices.
The term eXtreme Manufacturing (XM) was coined by Team WIKISPEED, a non-profit car manufacturer, to describe how it manufactures automobiles combining the Scrum framework, Object-Oriented architecture and eXtreme Programming (XP). Blending these three practices, WIKISPEED invented a new manufacturing process that can shorten time-to-market, reduce labor costs and spur innovation.
eXtreme Manufacturing borrows the basic Agile principles from Scrum. First and foremost, it leverages small, cross-functional Teams, which have a Product Owner and Scrum Master. XM is structured around Sprints to help develop functionality in vertical slices that build overtime. Like Scrum, XM makes development transparent through tools like a Scrum board and a product backlog. It also borrows the concept of tracking process improvements by using Velocity. And, most importantly, it relies on the Lean concept of continuous improvement by employing Sprint Retrospectives and the Happiness Metric. Scrum provides the basic structure for XM.
In this two day Workshop, Scrum inventor Jeff Sutherland and WikiSpeed founder Joe Justice discuss eXtreme Manufacturing and show you how you can implement test-driven hardware development using the Scrum framework.
At the end of the course your team has build a complete Wikispeed car.
And in addition you are prepared for the Scrum Allinace "Certified Scrum Master" Zertifikation exam.
