In this training, you will learn:

  • The basics of Scrum and why it is important to hardware and systems design

  • How it differs from the traditional methods

  • Potential benefits from it

  • Challenges to applying Scrum to hardware and systems design

  • How to get training

  • How to make it work in your organizations

Using Scrum for hardware has many potential benefits, including building better team collaboration, improving consistency, and the ability to manage uncertainty and risk. 

As an expert on mechanical design processes, I’ve worked with many companies who want to implement Scrum and reap its benefits. Now, I want to pass that knowledge on to you.

"What we needed was a guru to lead us through the application of Scrum to our engineering processes. David engaged with two different project teams in two different locations. He has a structured approach, based on his years of experience that we found to be highly effective. David helps the team to determine how to tailor Scrum to their needs while still ensuring that the benefits of Scrum are achieved. Currently both teams are successfully using scrum meetings, sprint planning, rapid prototyping, and sprint retrospectives to keep the projects on-track.  We credit David’s expertise and guidance for these results."

"I taught last semester using your Scrum book in a product development course. Even that I only got to teach half the semester because of the pandemic I was able to see a change in students motivation and from my point of view the methodology makes it more clear how to “grade” an open ended design project." 

 

- Professor Lugo
